Thirty-first Grand President 



rHIS PAGE IS DEVOTED to the small chapter, the one which has been hurting for Rushees 
and Pledges for the past few years, and which has become discouraged with the 
"lifeblood" of Fraternity -RUSH. 

Chapter Consultants, Headquarters Staff, and all other National Officers are con- 
stantly confronted with the questions, "How do we Rush?", "What do we sell?", and 
"How do we interest prospective members in Phi Sigma Kappa?". 

To these questions I would like to offer the following hypothetical situation. Imagine 
yourself placing an advertisement in your campus newspaper and posting signs in 
prominent places around your campus reading: 

Phi Sigma Kappa wants fifteen men who can believe in and live by 
its Three Cardinal Principles; 

To Promote Brotherhood 

To Stimulate Scholarship 

To Develop Character 

Phi Sigma Kappa wants fifteen men who will participate in a free 
flow of ideas within the structure of a Brotherhood, who will enjoy 
the closeness of a Brotherhood, and who by their own example will 
strengthen that bond of Brotherhood. 

Phi Sigma Kappa wants fifteen men who are Scholars, in quest of, but 
not afraid to confront, the truth as a Brother sees it, who will strive for 
their own academic excellence and help their brothers achieve theirs 
when called upon. 

Phi Sigma Kappa wants fifteen men of Character, with potential for 
even greater Character, who will strengthen the character of their 
Fraternity and leave it with a higher ideal and a greater future than 
when they joined. 


As simple as the above seems, isn't it really what Phi Sigma Kappa is all about? 
And aren't these ideals as "relevant" today as they were nearly one hundred years ago? 

And if you read and re-read and think about the above hypothetical advertisement, 
and discuss it at your dinner table, your "bull sessions" and your Rush meetings, 
wouldn't you be able to tell a stranger about your Fraternity with conviction? . . . indeed 
enough conviction to motive him to join you in search for another "Fifteen Men"? 

Fraternally, /

Kappa Chapter House 

The Saga 

off An 




The third in a series of Signet articles featuring 
Phi Sig chapters with outstanding records of accom- 
plishment. This is NOT a competition, but rather an 
effort to show other chapters how they can become 
leaders. New chapters are eligible for this column. 

1£"appa Chapter, located in State College, Pa., at 
■^ the Pennsylvania State University, was inducted 
into Phi Sigma Kappa in 1899. Since that time, fra- 
ternities at Penn State have undergone many changes. 
Fortunately our chapter has succeeded in adapting to 
these changes with only few difficulties. Our chapter 

house, built in 1926, has survived its long existence 
with minimal repairs and alterations. We try to keep 
a list of possible repairs and when to expect them to 
avoid sudden financial problems. 

Over the years we have had many fine men gradu- 
ate from Kappa, with a total of 956 initiates. Many 
of our alums, even to the Class of '70, would be quite 
surprised with the changes in our rushing and pledging 
programs. Since our University is on a Tri-mester 
system, we now have a Fall, Winter and Spring Pledge 
Class, and rush for each class the term before. Al- 
though we do find problems with the three-term 
system, especially with finding time, we feel three 
classes of 7 or 8 pledges have more advantages than 
two larger classes a year. We try to have 15 to 20 new 
men move into the house each September to balance 
the number of brothers graduating and living in 
apartments. At present we have a total of 61 actives, 
41 in the house, 13 in apartments and 7 pledges in 
the dorms. 

The beginning of this year saw the start of a new 
rushing system at Kappa. Its main point, other than 
attracting pledges, is to get the brothers more involved 
with the rushees. Our program starts the first week 
with brothers going into the dorms to talk with rushees 
and answer the many questions they have, and do this 
in their own environment. This is followed by a week 
of smokers and then a week of dinners. Hopefully by 
the third week most of the brothers know the rushees 
well enough to vote on bids. The next step, which is 
a big problem, is keeping after the bidees until they 
accept. Many times, brothers lose interest in bidees 
after six or seven weeks and this is how we lose some 
good men. Rush is a big part of fraternity living, per- 
haps the biggest, and the chapter must not rely on the 

Winter, 1972 

rush chairman to do all the work. Although we have 
only used this system once, we found many good 
things with it, and some bad, but through experience 
we are quite hopeful. 

With our House operating at 95% occupancy, our 
house bill for room and board has been been anchored 
at $370 a term with an additional $40 social fee. 
Close records are maintained for all spending and each 
year a budget is laid out, according to past records, to 
which we rigidly adhere. In relative comparision with 
other houses on campus, we are in excellent condition 
and the financial future is bright with the incoming of 
our new pledges. 

Our good record is mostly due to the efforts of our 
adviser, Robert W. (Bear) Koehler (K '58), Assoc. 
Prof, of Accounting at the University, who has been 
with Kappa for many years, with only a few select 
brothers knowing the exact time. Bear has done much 
for Kappa and the National Fraternity, and we are 
sure that all who know him will join with the active 
chapter in a big "THANKS" to Bear. 

"Bear" Koehler, Kappa's capable Chapter adviser and District 
Governor and Phi Sigma Kappa's champion gourmet 

We are proud of all our alums and the support they 
have given us. We recommend to all chapters to main- 
tain communication with all alums, for their loyalty is 
genuine and never to be overlooked. In an effort to 
keep close ties with them, we edit a house magazine 
entitled The Bond. Sections are included on rush, 
pledging, social activities, and athletics. Messages from 
alums are entered in a selected portion to be read by 
classmates, pledge brothers and anyone who has an 
ear for gossip. 

Although not known as a jock house on campus, 
Kappa has enjoyed many successful years of intra- 
murals. For the past eight years we have ranked in the 
top fifth of all fraternities athletically. In the last two 

Kappa's Little Sisters of the Triple T's 

years Kappa placed fifth and seventh respectively out 
of fifty competing houses. 

Last fall our football team, having easily won the 
league title, was defeated in the waning seconds of. 
the gridiron quarter-finals. Brother Stef Umberger 
successfully racketed his way into the tennis semi- 
finals and fared even better on the wrestling mats as 
he captured the 167-lb. class for the second year in a 
row. The Kappa Cagers easily won their way into the 
league finals, only to be turned back in a hard-fought 
battle by the eventual IM basketball champion. Our 
Keglers bowled into the semi-finals, where they fell 

Kappa's first prize, facade, Spring Week '71 with Kappa Kappa 


victim to defeat by the slim margin of one pin. All 
five starters are returning this year and we are looking 
forward to greater rewards. Brother John Eisley, awe- 
some on the basketball court, proved to be masterful 
at wielding a badminton racket, as he was defeated 
in the quarter-finals. With many lettermen returning 
this year, Kappa is looking forward to another success- 
ful athletic year. 

Even though we put a great effort into athletics, we 
keep an equally high ranking in scholastics. In the last 
few years we have enjoyed ranking within the top ten 
fraternities, and we try to instill in our pledges and 
brothers the need for good grades in our effort to 
stimulate Scholarship. 

Socially, we keep at the top of the list, as with 
athletics and scholarship. Through the untiring efforts 
of our social chairmen, we rarely have a dull weekend. 
During the year we combine fun with charity, making 
an even better time. Last FalL_we entertained a group 
of Veterans from Valley Forge Hospital, taking them 
to a football game followed by dinner. After a brief 
rest we held a party for them, which all enjoyed. In 
May, we entered the Spring Week Festival, with the 
dear ladies of Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority, the 
proceeds going into a fund for underprivileged stu- 
dents. Through the united efforts of everyone, we won 
first place in three of the four categories. Part of the 
success of our social schedule is the presence of our 

Kappa's Executive Board— Rich Weaver, Craig Melidosian, Bill Deni 

son, Dcnnrs Wist, John Eisley, Ed Pescatore, Rick Miller, Steve 

Yorks, Bear Koehler, Pete Caruk, The Wax 

Little Sisters. Although they have only been with us 
for a few years, they have done much for the chapter, 
and we value their friendship above all else. 

Even though we have enjoyed a good past record, 
we try to improve it each year. With the good times, 
we accept the bad; we admit our problems and try to 
solve them; and generally adhere closely to the 
Cardinal Principles — Brotherhood, Scholarship and

Brother John S. Knight, Gamma (Cornell) '18, 
Editorial Chairman, Knight Newspapers, Inc., re- 
ceived the Poor Richard Club's 1972 Gold Medal 
Achievement Award for his contribution to the com- 
munications field in the U. S. on Monday, January 17, 
in Philadelphia. 

The Knight Chain operates the Philadelphia Daily 
News and the Philadelphia Inquirer. 

The award was presented at the annual Poor 
Richard dinner at the Bellevue Stratford Hotel with 
approximately 1000 guests in attendance, many of 
them being distinguished names in this field. 

Brother Knight earlier led a pilgrimage through 
historic Philadelphia as the Poor Richard Club com- 
memorated the 266th anniversary of the birth of 
Benjamin Franklin, the Club's patron saint. He also 
placed a wreath at the foot of the statue of Franklin 
at the Franklin Institute and then addressed a lunch- 
eon at the Poor Richard Club, 1319 Locust Street. 

Mayor Frank L. Rizzo presented to Brother Knight 
a Philadelphia Bowl and a model of the Liberty Bell 
during a welcoming address at the luncheon. 


Brother Robert L. Kunzig, Mu (Penn) '39, has 
resigned as Administrator of the General Services 
Administration in Washington, D. C. (since 1969) to 
accept his appointment by President Nixon as Asso- 
ciate Judge on the U. S. Court of Claims. His appoint- 
ment was confirmed by the Senate in December and 
he took the oath of office on January 25, 1972. 

Brother Kunzig formerly held the position of Admin- 
istrator of the Pennsylvania Services Administration. 
He also managed the successful election campaigns 
of Senator Hugh Scott, former Governor Raymond 
Schaeffer and District Attorney (Philadelphia) Arlen 

Bob will be remembered by many Phi Sigs as one 
of the young attorneys who aided in the prosecution of 
the World War II Nuremberg trials. He was the ban- 
quet speaker at the fraternity's Bedford Convention in 
1952, on which occasion he gave an interesting talk 
on the Nuremberg trials.

Relevance in the Classroom- 
What Does it Really Mean? 

by Dr. James E. Sefton, Xi P (Fac.) 

Former Chapter Adviser of Xi Pentaton 

(San Fernando Valley State College) 

Reform movements usually develop their own 
vocabulary by coining new words or by appropri- 
ating common ones to new uses. The word "relevant" 
is central to the vocabulary of students who desire 
greater control over college curricula — who seek to 
redirect an academic life they feel can no longer help 
solve current problems of society. Thus, courses in 
ecology, urban studies, the role of women, Vietnam, 
minority problems, etc., are highly "relevant." We 
also have the so-called "Experimental College," or 
"Free University," offering everything from alchemy 
to yoga on an informal basis — without academic 
credit, grades, exams, ponderous textbooks, or other 
traditional classroom trappings. Such informal arrange- 
ments are valid as long as they contribute to the knowl- 
edge or pleasure of the participants. So are formal 
courses on topics of modern interest, as long as they 
measure up to high standards of academic respectabil- 
ity. But when restructuring of subject matter means 
deterioration in intellectual discipline, it is time to 
blow the whistle. 

Colleges and universities are fond of saying that 
they preserve and transmit to future generations man- 
kind's accumulated knowledge. To students who be- 
lieve that both past and present are gigantic and 
hypocritical frauds, such knowledge is not worth 
passing on, and to call the whole academic process 
"irrelevant" is the ultimate rejection. This might be 
called the Alexandrian approach; how the Gordian 
Knot was put together was irrelevant to Alexander 
when he took his sword to it. Yet modern society, 
tangled though it may be, cannot be treated like a 
Gordian Knot. How it reached its present troubled 
state is of great importance. 

To some, "relevance" means relaxing graduation 
requirements by substituting electives for required 
courses. The courses offering needful skills are passed 
up in favor of those with fashionable subject matter. 
The inner-city derelict, if treated to a free meal in a 
cafeteria, will probably ask for roast beef before he 
asks for lemon pie; but the student whose basic skills 
are undernourished cannot be counted on to take 
English grammar, logic, argumentation, or college 
math without prodding. There is nothing wrong with 
electives. But there is also nothing wrong with a 

faculty saying, "These are the minimum accomplish- 
ments which a university-educated man will possess, 
and by the authority which comes from our experience, 
we say you will demonstrate them before you leave." 

Sometimes students label a course "irrelevant," 
because "the professor isn't teaching students what 
they want to learn." This charge can be valid, but it 
is easily overworked. If a student enrolls for a survey 
of Twentieth Century American Literature, only to 
find that it is half Faulkner, he may have a legitimate 
complaint. But if the real trouble is that the professor 
isn't following the particular interpretation the student 
wants to hear, then there is no case against the profes- 
sor. No student should ever enroll in a class to rein- 
force his own beliefs, because intellectual challenge is 
the essence of "relevance." I recall a conversation with 
one of my leftist students, back about 1968. "Suppose 
we had a course in the History of Southeast Asia," I 
said, "and suppose there were two sections, one taught 
by a professor prominent for his anti-war views, and 
one by an equally prominent supporter of the war. 
Whose would you choose?" Without hesitation he said 
he would choose the first one. That course would have 
been "irrelevant" for that particular student. It would, 
probably, have contributed to his factual knowledge, 
but depending on how much slanting the professor 
did, it might not have obliged him to challenge his 
preconceived ideas. 

"Relevance" is only partially a function of subject 
matter. The History of the Medieval Church can be 
just as "relevant" as the History of American Minor- 
ities. It doesn't particularly matter, in the long run, 
that Nicholas II came between Stephen X and Alex- 
ander II. But if in the process of studying for the 
exam, the student also gave some thought to how men 
influence events, to the motives for which they do 
things, to the questions one must ask in deciding 
which of three conflicting versions of a story to believe, 
to the best method of analyzing problems — then he 
has exercised his mind in a way he will have to be 
exercising it the rest of his life. 

"Relevance," after all, is not as fleeting and transi- 
tory as students often seem to think. There will prob- 
ably always be educational fads. But the need to

Elects Bill Aaron National President; 
Pat Asper Region IV Vice President 

The Grand Council of Phi Sigma Kappa held its 
mid-winter meeting at the O'Hare Inn, Chicago, 
Illinois, on January 14-15 with all members present. 
Also present were Executive Director Richard Snow- 
don and Editor of The SIGNET Bert Brown; also two 
members of Beta Hexaton Chapter (Purdue-Calumet) 
— Brother Joe Gogolak and Steve Krasowski. Prob- 
ably the most important item of business on the agenda 
was the interim election of the Grand President to fill 
the vacancy created by the resignation of Brother 
Robert C. Carter last July 30th. 

The names of nine brothers had been submitted 
for consideration by the Council. They are as follows: 
William H. Aaron, Delta Deuteron '58; Thomas A. 
(Pat) Guffee, Xi Deuteron '66; Arnold Jones, Iota 
Deuteron '27; James A. Murman, Beta Tetarton '68; 
Frederick H. Nesbitt, Theta Pentaton '65; John K. 
Pfahl, Kappa '47; Albert D. Shonk, Jr., Omega Deu- 
teron '64; John Silinsh, Nu '57; Robert M. Zillgitt, 
Omega Tetarton '60. From this list of nominations 
Brother William H. Aaron, Delta Deuteron (Michi- 
gan) '58, was elected Grand President to serve until 
the next general convention. 

Brother Aaron, age 35, was born and raised in 
Detroit, Michigan, where he attended high school and 
entered the University of Michigan in 1954. He was 
initiated into Delta Deuteron Chapter in the Spring of 
1956 and served as President and Secretary of the 
chapter. He received a B.A. in Political Science in 
June 1959 and joined the National Broadcasting Com- 
pany in New York City later that year. The following 
year he moved back to Detroit to assist in putting an 
FM radio station on the air and later became Sales 
Manager of WDTM-FM in Detroit. Upon his return 
to Detroit he served as Chapter Adviser at Delta 
Deuteron and became a member of the Delta Deuteron 
Alumni Board in 1960. 

In 1965 he rejoined the National Broadcasting 
Company in Chicago in radio sales. Two years later, 
he joined the Katz Agency, one of the largest com- 
panies engaged in representation of radio and tele- 
vision stations in national sales. 

He was appointed District Governor in 1965, work- 
ing with several existing chapters in Region IV as 
well as on expansion. Following the resignation of 
Brother Dick Schwartz as Vice President, he was 
elected by the Council to fill that vacancy in Novem- 
ber 1969. 

Winter, 1972 

Orville L. (Pat) Asper 

Bill is married to Anne Cofer, Kappa Alpha Theta 
at Michigan, class of '61. They have three children 
and reside in Palatine, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. 

Bill and Anne are active in community and church 
affairs and in amateur theater. Both belonged to 
The Players and Fine Arts Society in Detroit. Their 
hobbies are gardening, collecting and refinishing old 
furniture. Both are athletically inclined, playing ten- 
nis, golf, swimming and bicycling. 

To fill the vacancy created by Brother Aaron's 
election to the Presidency, the Council, as provided 
in the Bylaws, elected Brother Orville (Pat) Asper, 
Alpha Deuteron (Illinois) '58 as Vice President for 
Region IV to serve until the next general convention. 

Brother Asper, whose father incidentally is also an 
Alpha Deuteron alumnus, attended school at Chenoa, 
Illinois, graduating in 1954. He entered the University 
of Illinois the following year and graduated in 1958 
with a B.S. in Agriculture. Later he attended Illinois 
State University at Normal, Illinois, from which he 
received an M.S. degree in Occupational Safety in 
1971. He is currently employed by State Farm Insur- 
ance Company in Bloomington, Illinois, in the position 
of Corporate Safety Coordinator. 

As an undergraduate he held the positions of Presi- 
dent, Vice President, Secretary and Rush Chairman 
of the chapter and since 1969 he has been a member of 
Alpha Deuteron Alumni Association. 

Pat is married and he and his wife Lois have three 

Later in the meeting, Brothers Aaron and Asper 
(who had been invited to attend by telephone) were 
installed in their new offices. 

1. The authorization of a new policy for the col- 
lection of initiation and pledge fees payable to 
the Grand Chapter. (This policy was later ex- 
plained in further detail in a release to all 
chapters and colonies.) 

2. The establishment of criteria for suspending a 

3. The approval of the use of computerized letters, 
employing the services of Fraternal Systems 
Incorporated in the alumni fund-raising cam- 

4. The approval of selecting Amherst, Mass., as the 

site for the Centennial Convention pending the 
passage of the amendment by the chapters, etc., 
enabling the shift of the convention from 1972 to 

5. The approval of the Jim Beam decanter project. 

6. The appointment of Robert M. Zillgitt as the 
third member of the Executive Committee. 

Following a review of all trouble-spot chapters, the 
Council voted to revoke the charters of the following 

Iota Triton — (Connecticut) 

Omicron Triton — (U. of Cal. Davis) 

Mu Pentaton — (U. of Wis. -Milwaukee) 

Upsilon Pentaton — (Hartford) 

It also voted to place Alpha Pentaton Chapter (New 
Mexico) under suspension. 

Legal Consequences of Conviction 
for Possession of Marijuana 

Prepared by 
Jones Apothecary, Inc. Houston, Texas 

(CourCeay of The Rainbow of Delta Tan Delta) 

Few peope realize the full legal penalties for either 
possessing or selling or giving marijuana to another 
person. Either to possess or supply marijuana is a 
felony under both state and federal law and may 
result in a penitentiary sentence. But few people under- 
stand that the penitentiary sentence is only a small part 
of the penalty for possession of marijuana. 

Even if a person is put on probation and is never 
sent to the penitentiary, his permanent police record 
will show that he was convicted as a felon. Anyone 
who has ever been convicted on a felony charge loses 
the following rights for the rest of his life: 

1 . Loss of the right to vote. 

2. Loss of the right to hold many public offices. 

3. Loss of eligibility for security clearances required 
in many jobs involving government contracts. 

4. Serious impairment of job opportunities, since the 
fact of a felony indictment is made a part of the 
credit reference reports and police records. 

5. Loss of eligibility for a commission in the armed 

6. Loss of eligibility to enter many areas of post- 
graduate training such as law, medicine, nursing. 

7. Loss of eligibility for a veterans administration 

8. Loss of eligibility to be an officer in a small busi- 
ness investment company. 

9. Loss of eligibility to work as an investment 

10. Loss of eligibility for a civil service pension or 

11. Loss of eligibility to hold office in any labor 

In addition, in Texas and most of the other states, 
a person convicted of a felony cannot obtain a license 
to work in the following trades and professions, these 
restrictions being imposed for the person's entire life: 

1. Attorney 

2. State Banking Department 

3. Barbering 

4. Hairdressing 

5. Cosmetologist 

6. Dentistry 

7. District Clerk 

8. Funeral director or Embalmer 

9. Life Insurance Counselor 

10. Nursing 

1 1 . Optometry 

12. Pharmacist 

13. Physician or Surgeon 

14. Plumbing 

15. Membership in a rural credit union 

16. Public School Teachers 

Anyone convicted of a felony has a permanent 
police record with the local police, the state police, 
and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Prospective 
employers and credit bureaus often check these. 

In addition, anyone arrested for possession of mari- 
juana (and many other drugs that are abused) is 
usually shown on police records as having been 
arrested on a "Narcotics Charge." Even if the person 
is later found not guilty, his local police and state files 
may continue to indicate this. These records may 
seriously impair the person's ability to obtain many 
desirable jobs or get a good credit rating, despite the 
fact that he was eventually found to be not guilty. 


Foundation Meets — 
Expands Awards Program 

Seeks Greater Support from Alums for Its Scholastic Program 

The annual meeting of the Phi Sigma Kappa 
Foundation, Inc., was held in Chicago, Illinois, 
last December 7th. Present were President Lawrence 
Jensen, Vice President Frank Fernholz, Scholarship 
Director Dean Terrill, Grand Chapter Director of 
Scholarship Bruce Johnson, Trustees Fran Weeks and 
Tony Fusaro, and Secretary-Treasurer Bert Brown. 
Proxies were received from 74 members. 

As a result of a gratifying increase in contributions 
for the past year and increased income from invest- 
ments, it was decided that funds were available to 
make a substantial expansion in the awards program 
for the coming year. Brothers Terrill and Fran Weeks 
collaborated in presenting a revised program in which 
greater participation by the undergraduates would 
hopefully eventuate. The Undergraduate Scholarship 
phase of the program received the major portion of 
the increased budget. A small fund has been set aside 
to provide matching awards to chapters contributing 
money for the development of the chapter library; and 
also matching awards to those chapters having a 
Scholastic Awards Program; both on a first-applied- 
for-first-granted basis. 

Briefly the new program includes the following: 

1. An increase in the runner-up undergraduate 
scholarships from $400.00 to $500.00 and an 
increase in the number from 4 to 6. The first 
prize will continue to be $1000. 

2. The Foundation will match scholarship awards 
given by the chapter or colony and or the 
alumni on a first-applied-for-first-granted basis 
up to a total for the year of $500.00. 

3. A continuation of the library award but only 
upon direct application from those chapters and 
colonies interested in developing a library. 

4. The Foundation will match dollar for dollar 
amounts spent by the chapter or colony and or 

Brother Alumnus — Why not do your thing by mailing 

its alumni on additions to the chapter library 
up to a total of $500.00 for the year on a first- 
applied-for-first-granted basis. 

5. The Foundation will supply periodicals and 
books to all chapters and colonies as recom- 
mended by the Scholarship Director up to a 
total of $500.00 for the year. 

6. The Foundation will award to an undergraduate 
brother the sum of $25.00 for the best book 
review submitted for publication in each issue 
of The SIGNET. 

The Watts Scholarship Society Membership Award 
will be continued as will the Foundation Scholarship 
Award (best initiate) but with more appropriate 
award items. 

The Trustees sincerely hope that this revised pro- 
gram will motivate greater participation by all chap- 
ters and colonies and individual brothers, and that 
this opportunity for greater participation will result in 
increased contributions from the alumni during the 
coming year for this worthy activity of the fraternity. 

The following members of the 1971 class of trustees

An Intelligent Analysis of the Problem 

by A. Jay Hatfield 

Delta Chapter (W. Va.) '72 

{ {'PRATERNrTiEs are made up of ideas brought into 

* it." So stated Dewey Boswell, the current Presi- 
dent of the Interfraternity Council at West Virginia 

Perhaps that statement is not the most profound, 
but I feel it reflects the introspective feeling recently 
begun by fraternities. They are gradually becoming 
more liberal. The recent abolition of paddling by the 
campus Greeks, the reduction of hazing during hell 
week (esp.) and the influx of new ideas and goals 
signify steps in the right direction. 

These improvements are not enough, but they do 
prove that initial change can come from within the 

More changes are needed, I feel, for the fraternities 
to grow in relation to the student body; (that is, if 
the system desires to do this.) A change of emphasis 
from traditional to today, elimination of discrimina- 
tion, and easing of innate restrictions are necessary for 
this change. Fraternities continue to resist these 

They continue to insist that a place exists for all 
types of individuals, even stereotypes. They feel this 
individuality extends from each individual to each 
House. For the most part this is true. Fraternities are 

When questioned (for this article) on the apparent 
lack of involvement in service projects and related 
community-directed goals, fraternity members state 
that the base of the system rests on Brotherhood and 
the fact that fraternities are social organizations. 

WVU's fraternities deny accusations of apathy in 
this manner. They don't desire involvement in service 
projects as a fraternity, because they desire to remain 
socially oriented. Likewise, they also feel adequately 
involved because of the presence of many fraternity 
members in diverse campus-oriented activities. 

In proportion, fraternities still are over-represented 
in student government, but I feel this is another grad- 
ual change for this campus' fraternities. Pete Kalis' 
administration isn't Greek dominated by any means. I 
doubt if the next one will be either. But again, frater- 
nities feel this isn't one of their goals today. 

In order to thrive and not merely survive, I do feel 
many goals of the fraternities need re-evaluation. More 
co-operation is needed, both within the Houses and 

the system. The entire membership should be involved 
in decision-making policies concerning the House. As 
the case is, all too often one select group continually 
makes the decisions. Fraternities should at least strive 
for internal involvement. 

Sensitivity groups with pledges, rotating committees 
for actives, and a means of keeping members (espe- 
cially older ones) involved is necessary. 

Perhaps the lack of the above are faults. If they are, 
they're easily remedied. Fraternities must decide this, 
not those outside the system. 

If Brotherhood and social activities are the bases of 
fraternities, then I commend and congratulate them 
for their efforts. I feel them worthy enough of con- 

In today's world Brotherhood is often spoken of, 
yet too seldom practiced. The need for more brotherly 
love is beyond reproach, I feel. Fraternities do help 
foster friendships, co-operation among members and 
tolerance of others. Or else the fraternity loses an- 
other guy. Again the extent of this is left to the frater- 
nities and their members. 

Practically all college students enjoy partying, play- 
time, or whatever we care to call it. I may not agree 
with the manner in which fraternities party, but I'll 
defend their right to party until I pass out. 

I hope this article is as objective as I tried to keep 
it. I've viewed the fraternity system from many pos- 
sible angles. I've gained insight from two and a half 
years of involvement. 

I've also viewed from without. We don't always 
desire Brotherhood or social contact. These forces exist 
outside of fraternities in abundance. Quite often, espe- 
cially lately, I've found myself viewing from outside 
for the aforementioned reasons. 

The course of fraternities (sororities aren't my 
speciality) is their own. They will continue to exist as 
long as they serve a useful purpose for their members. 
If the ideas brought in are what the fraternities desire 
to be, then they should survive. If one or the other 
changes, then it stands to reason the other must 
follow suit. 

The times are changing and fraternities have the 
choice to follow suit. Possibly they don't desire 
changes. In either case, they are fortunate enough to 
decide for themselves. 



News From YOUR National 

by Richard C. Snowdon, Pi '61 
Executive Director 


Q. As a chapter treasurer, am I legally responsi- 
ble for the pledge and initiation fees being 
sent to the Grand Chapter? 

A. Yes, we have a bond for all chapter treasurers and 
it is the responsibility of the treasurer to act as 
"agent" in the collection of these fees — he is legally 

Q. Is there any course of action we can take 
against a brother who owes us money, but 
refuses to make payment? 

A. Yes. Several alternatives are available. Some insti- 
tutions will hold grades and diplomas until all 
financial obligations are settled. Others will not. 
A series of letters might be advantageous. If all 
methods fail, then expulsion papers may be filed 
for Council action. This is, of course, a last resort. 

Q. We want a new adviser — so, we're going to 
find someone and then inform the Grand 
Chapter. Is this the correct procedure? 

A. Not quite — A chapter may make a recommenda- 
tion to its District Governor, who in turn seeks 
the endorsement of both the Vice President of the 
Region and the President. This is the correct pro- 
cedure and where followed, avoids problems. The 
letter of appointment comes from the Grand 

Q. Our chapter wishes to begin a Little Sisters' 
Club. Where do we find out how to do this? 

A. The Grand Chapter, through Headquarters, main- 
tains a complete information packet on this sub- 

ject. Just write and ask for it. 
P. S. If any chapter has a complete Little Sisters' 
ritual ceremony we would be greatly indebted to 
receive a copy at Headquarters. We want to sug- 
gest one to those chapters making inquiry. 

Q. Does the National Fraternity have an official 
Little Sisters pin? 

A. Not as yet but some work has been done in design- 
ing an appropriate pin for our Little Sisters mem- 
bers, pending a poll of the chapters to see whether 
they will purchase relatively inexpensive badges 
for their Little Sisters (any chapters having ideas 
along this line should pass them along to Head- 

Q. As a Phi Sig, if I transfer to another college or 
university where we don't already have a 
chapter, can I start one? 

A. Most definitely. After careful review of the cam- 
pus and a number of discussions (plus approval) 
a brother may begin a colony of Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Q. What positions are paid professional ones in 
the fraternity? 

A. The Executive Director, the Editor and Business 
Manager of the SIGNET, the two (2) Chapter 
Consultants, the bookkeeper, and four (4) secre- 
taries. All others are positions of a voluntary 
nature and the only compensations are expenses 
and the pleasure derived from working with and 
for the Grand Chapter (chapters, colonies, alumni 
clubs and individuals. ) 


T" 1 he Council of the Grand Chapter of Phi 

•*■ Sigma Kappa, meeting in Knoxville, Tennessee, on 
July 31 -Aug. 1, 1971, authorized the establishment 
of this board upon the recommendation of the Execu- 
tive Director. 

The following brothers on the Board represent vari- 
ous professions respectively: Edward S. Lawrence, III, 
Pi '60 — banking; Reaves C. Lukens, Jr., Kappa '53 
— real estate; Jess D. Otley, Rho Deuteron '50 — con- 
struction; Sidney L. Wickenhaver, Phi '37 — legal, and 
L. Paul Winings, Jr., Epsilon Triton '51 — retail busi- 

The board has held two meetings and is currently 
evaluating the present Grand Chapter loan policy and 
other national fraternity policies, in order to establish 
a more realistic and business-like approach to this 
area of Grand Chapter operation. 

The purpose of the board is two-fold . . . ( 1 ) cre- 
ate a policy that is more comprehensive and informa- 
tive for chapter information; (2) examine and make 
recommendations on chapter housing loan applica- 
tions to the Council. 

It is believed that a more equitable policy can be 
formulated by this approach.

Address & Status Maintenance 
Want to improve your chapter's alumni program or initiate 
. or do you want to establish an alumni club? 



n May, 1971, the Grand Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa con- 
tracted with Fraternal Systems, Inc., of Waltham, Massa- 
chusetts for the development and implementation of a com- 
puterized membership records system. 

Fraternal Systems is a specialist in this field, with clients 
including a number of other fraternities, plus a number of 
other associations. Because they already service other fraternal 
organizations. Phi Sigma Kappa was not required to invest 
in any expensive development effort. 

The Fraternity's membership file is maintained on an IBM 
System 360 model 75, one of the largest commercially avail- 
able computer systems in the country. Utilization of this 
extremely powerful computer greatly increases the flexibility 
available to the Fraternity, and the speed with which it is able 
to obtain special reports. 

Phi Sigma Kappa's Automated Membership Records System 
incorporates a distinctive approach to computerized file main- 
tenance. All new member additions, address changes, and 
other status changes in the member's records are submitted 
for processing to Fraternal Systems on typewritten sheets 
which can be optically scanned in Boston. 

Members of the clerical staff of Headquarters, utilizing 
IBM Selectric typewriters, type the additions or changes in 
a form which can be directly read by optical scanning equip- 
ment. Once the transactions are scanned, they are automatical- 
ly placed onto magnetic computer tape for processing by the 
computer. This approach allows the Grand Chapter to main- 
tain complete control over both the quality of the data and 
the completeness of the membership file. 

This new automated approach allows the fraternity's nation- 
al staff to process address changes, and add new initiates, on 
the same day the information is received in Drexel Hill. These 
changes are sent to the computer system quarterly. 

Computer data on each member includes name, current 
address, chapter, date of initiation, class year, and member- 
ship status (undergraduate, alumnus). It is planned to include 
biographical and career data as soon as possible, plus any 

other refinements that may be desired in the future. The 
system has been designed to permit easy expansion of other 
membership data items as they are identified and requested. 

The computer has been programmed to provide a variety 
of services for chapters, alumni associations, and Headquarters 
Office It is possible for a chapter or an alumni association to 
request mailing labels or listings for any select subgroup 
within its membership rolls by zip code, in order alphabet- 
ically, or by class year. 

Specific products available are adhesive mailing labels, 
Cheshire mailing labels (for use with automatic mailing equip- 
ment), and directory listings in a variety of desired sequences. 
For example, a listing of all alumni who have graduated since 
1950 from the Pennsylvania Chapters and who currently 
reside in Los Angeles, California. If a chapter or alumni 
association desires to produce a directory of members, proper 
"camera ready" listings can be furnished, thus bypassing costly 
typesetting. In addition, the computer produces all mailing 
labels for the SIGNET. 

It is expected that the Fraternity's computer system can 
and will save each chapter and alumni association consider- 
able time and money in the vital areas of membership record 
keeping and member mailings. Moreover, the system will 
enable the Grand Chapter to provide more services to mem- 
bers, chapters, and alumni associations and will insure a 
highly efficient and improved records system. 

Forms are available from the Grand Chapter providing the 
time schedule for making requests for computer materials and 
explaining the method for requesting specific data items. This 
information is also contained in the new Phi Sigma Kappa 
Operations Manual. 

Chapters and Alumni Corporation officers should familiar- 
ize themselves with these services offered by the Fraternity 
through the new computer operations and should utilize 
these for increasing communications with their alumni 
throughout the country. 

Please send all changes to Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Zuber Appointed to Masonic High Post 

Brother John W. Zuber, Jr., Kappa Deuteron 
(Georgia Tech) '29, was recently appointed 
Deputy of the Supreme Council 33rd Degree, Ancient 
and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the 
Southern Jurisdiction. In this position Brother Zuber 
is the leader of some 16,000 Scottish Rite Masons in 
the Valleys of Atlanta, Albany, Augusta, Columbus, 
Macon and Savannah (Georgia). 

Brother Zuber is a member of the York Rite 
Bodies, the Yaarab Shrine and the Royal Order of 
Jesters. In lay life he is owner of the Zuber Lumber 
Company, one of the oldest firms in Atlanta, a 
member of the Atlanta Lions Club, the Alpha Kappa 
Psi and the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternities at the 
Georgia Institute of Technology. In World War II he 
served as Chaplain in the United States Army with 
the rank of captain. 

In addition to his work at Georgia Tech and 

Georgia State, his educational background includes a 
law degree from Woodrow Wilson School of Law.

Last November 20th the brothers of Kappa Pen- 
taton, Univ. of Cal. at Santa Barbara hosted 26 
residents of Hillside House, a cerebral palsy center 
located in Santa Barbara, when they took the cerebral 
palsy students to the Santa Barbara-Santa Clara an- 
nual football game. This event has been a four-year 
tradition in community service for the chapter which 
has supported the organization since 1968. 

Possessing national interest in cerebral palsy bene- 
fit work the Santa Barbara Phi Sigma Kappa Chapter 
contributes each year to the Hillside House by spon- 
soring this event for the patients and by fund-raising 
support as well. In previous years the selling of "Go 
Gaucho" buttons and special money-raising dinners 
have accumulated over $750 in donations which have 
helped toward the purchase of a muscle-coordinating 
device now in use at the center. 

Brother Jim Gazdecki of the chapter was this year's 
Phi Sig chairman for the affair and referring to this 
community service project he said: 

"Our immediate goal is to make sure we extend 
ourselves to the people at Hillside House in the great- 
est way we can. We want to make sure we'll be real 
companions to them for the day and make it a fun- 
producing event for them. This is one practical way by 
which we can really practice brotherhood. A lot of 
people seem to talk about it, but hopefully in this 
small way the Phi Sigs will be really doing something 
about it." 

This superb display of compassion for the less for- 
tunate is truly a credit to Kappa Pentaton Chapter.

Phi Sig Drive a Success 

Gamma Hexaton Offers Good Suggestion 

On Sunday, January 30, the brothers of Psi 
Tetarton (Waynesburg) Chapter of Phi Sigma 
Kappa joined together and canvassed the Waynesburg 
community, soliciting donations for the March of 
Dimes campaign in Green County (Pennsylvania). 

The March of Dimes research, medical care, and 
educational programs are all benefitted by such drives. 
Its medical service programs around the country work 
closely with many health departments and medical 
societies to combat this nation's second greatest de- 
stroyer of human life — birth defects. 

Thanks to the very generous people of the Waynes- 
burg community and the enthusiastic brothers who 
participated in the drive, the March of Dimes Cam- 
paign is $325.00 richer today. 

The Phi Sigs would like to personally thank every- 
one who gave to this worthy cause and ask continued 
support to help prevent and treat birth defects. 

You can make a splendid start on a chapter library 
by the following inexpensive method: 

( 1 ) Send a letter to all faculty and administration 
members explaining in detail what you are 
attempting to do in terms of beginning a chapter 
library. Request old or extra reference books and 
paperbacks which they may have in their own 

(2) Offer to pick up the textbooks in question with a 
self-addressed, prepaid return postcard, so that 
the chapter can coordinate the pickup. 

(3) Send a thank-you note to each contributing fac- 
ulty member and administrative personnel. 

The Foundation commends such initiative as shown 
above, and is ready to assist chapters and colonies in their 
efforts to develop a Chapter House Library. The appoint- 
ment of an official librarian will aid greatly. 

Winter, 1972 




Did you ever hear this expression, dear Reader? 
Well, it is a well-known good old American 
custom ... or one might say malady . . . from which 
no age group seems to be immune, regardless of sta- 
tion in life. Indeed it seems to be almost universal 
. . . not confined to Americans. But for the moment 
let's discuss it as it relates to fraternity in general and 
Phi Sig in particular. 

It is truly remarkable how many and sundry alibis a 
chapter, which gets into serious trouble, can dream up 
to prove that some one else other than the brothers of 
that chapter is responsible. What about low man- 
power? Here there are three stock excuses . . . ( 1 ) the 
administration is down on fraternities; (2) interest in 
fraternity membership is at an all-time low on our 
campus; (3) it is impossible to attract new men, 
because the chapter house is about to fall apart and 
we cannot rush on a competitive basis. So rushing is 
on dead center and it never occurs to anyone that a 
real concentrated effort to overcome these obstacles 
could make the difference between low manpower 
and adequate manpower. No matter that other frater- 
nities with almost identical problems are able to meet 
the challenge and go out and get a good pledge class. 
Alas, we're stuck with it and why put forth that little 
extra effort to insure the survival of the chapter. 

Then we come to that monster, financial insta- 
bility. Brothers simply do not have the money to meet 
their financial obligations, they say. Oh, yes, we try, 
but you can't expect us to economize on week-end 
parties, beer-busts, etc., etc. That would be unthink- 
able . . . that would ruin us. Individual and collective 
frugality? Are you kidding? 

In too many instances chapter officers are pretty 
adept at "passing the buck." Reports to Headquarters 
are late or not sent in at all . . . because "we just 
couldn't find the time to fill out the forms." What a 
lot of baloney! Take a little time out for the week-end 
party? Heaven forbid! Or reduce the time spent at the 
local pub by an hour or two? That would ruin our 
concept of Brotherhood . . . and a good tall glass of 
beer does more for Brotherhood than doing the job 
of reporting to HQ's does for Character. So National 
can just whistle for its reports. 

But what about Alumni, including national officers? 
Well, they too do their share of "buck passing." When 
the chapter appeals for financial support ... to im- 
prove the House, the silence is truly deafening. More 
reasons can be found for not parting with a few bucks 
than you can shake a stick at! Asking Alums to come 
over to the House to provide their moral support too 
frequently elicits the excuse — "Just too busy." 

Unfortunately that seems to be a stock excuse for 
some of our volunteer national officers too . . . espe- 


cially when called upon to visit trouble chapters in an 
emergency. Besides (they point out) we have Chapter 
Consultants who should be doing that job. Oh, hum 
. . . two C C's to cover all the trouble spots from 
Manhattan to the Golden Gate . . . from Canada to 
the Gulf of Mexico. 

None of us is so stupid or naive not to recognize 
that making excuses for one's shortcomings is a trait 
of human nature . . . and ofttimes excuses have some 
validity. Time IS a factor for volunteer officers, but 
isn't it usually true that time can be found to do the 
job, if one wants to find it badly enough? So let's not 
become chronic "buck passers." Rather let's each of 
us discharge our responsibilities so well that there will 
be no need for "buck passing." 

We don't mean to imply that this is a shortcoming 
of all Phi Sigs . . . nor that our fraternity has a 
monopoly on such practices. We know there are many 
brothers who take their responsibilities very seriously. 
Just remember . . . "if the shoe fits, put it on."

Co, fraternities are evil because their members 
are conformists! 

One of the most common criticisms made of frater- 
nities now-a-days is that they breed conformity . . . 
that when students conform as they allegedly do in 
the fraternity house, they lose their individuality, their 
capacity to make decisions as an individual ... to be 
themselves . . . free from the influence of their brothers. 
This simply is not so. 

If wearing a fraternity pin, sporting a blazer with 
the fraternity crest attached, or being clothed in a 
sweatshirt with the Greek letters stencilled thereon — 
or perhaps singing fraternity songs together or having 
parties together ... if these heinous practices consti- 
tute conformity, then perhaps in the eyes of some of 
our modernists the charge is justified. But aren't these 
critics being just a bit ridiculous, when one considers 
that many of these very people who censure frater- 
nities for squelching individuality religiously follow 
certain patterns of societal behavior, certain unusual 
modes of dress and certain bizarre trends in heirsute 
adornment because these happen to be the fashion of 
the day. Are they not in a sense the real conformists? 
Now let's make one thing perfectly clear. As far as 
present-day informality in dress and caveman hair-do 
are concerned ... we say emphatically TO EACH 
HIS OWN. (Remember how Samson of Biblical fame 
propheted by long hair? Possibly we need more Sam- 
sons in Phi Sigma Kappa.) But in making charges of 
conformism, let us not forget the old adage that beauty 
is skin-deep . . . and maybe this is the case of the pot 
(no pun intended) calling the kettle black. 

There may be considerable virtue in non-conformity 
but can it be logically assumed that evil lurks in all 
forms of conformism? In our many years of intimate 
knowledge of Phi Sig chapters we have found relatively 
few cases where fraternity life has blighted the mem- 
bers' capacity for self-expression or for individual 
action. There is very little evidence that brothers are 
guided into a mould which denies them the freedom 
to be anything they want to be or do anything they 
want to do as long as they prove to be real Brothers. 
If that single exception makes conformists of them, we 
need have no qualms about the evil effects of con- 
formity. As far as Phi Sigma Kappa is concerned, we 
say, "Let's have more and not less of this kind of 

Just after the dead-line for this SIGNET we learned 
of the tragic death of Brother Peter E. Deuel, Xi (St.

be published in the next SIGNET. 

Don McLean Oldest Living Past President 

Brother Donald H. McLean, Lambda '06, the oldest living 
past Grand President of the fraternity recently remarried at 
the age of 87. Don was the National President of the fra- 
ternity for the Biennium 1922-24. The older members of the 
fraternity will remember him as a congressman from the 
state of New Jersey and as a judge in Elizabeth, N.J. He is 
now residing at Longwood Towers Apt. 409A, Braintree,

C veryone wants to be a somebody. 

*-" That's the nature of man. No matter what his age, or 
his economic station, or his national origin, or his color, he 
likes to feel important. It's always been that way. 

But today it appears even more vital than ever because of 
the increasing difficulty to gain personal recognition. Modern 
man has little opportunity to beat upon his chest and shout 
about his accomplishments. Mostly he sees himself as only 
a paper tape of digits feeding into the computer of life. 

The frustration inherent in this feeling often calls for com- 
promise, like living in a fantasyland and dreaming of slaying 
modern dragons, or having an affair with Racquel Welch, or 
making a million dollars after taxes. 

Realizing the plight of the subdued individual someone has 
offered a few suggestions for the determined soul who seeks 
to attain the ethereal "somebody status." 

These suggestions simply are: 

1 — Challenge Joe Frazier to a one-round fight. 

2 — Rent a little old lady from an employment agency and 
carry her back and forth across a busy street. 

3 — Take a zither to work ... on the bus. 

A — Wear a black karate belt around your swimming trunks 
and scowl a lot. 

5 — Form an organization that nobody understands, one 
like "The Society for Free Musical Expression on the Water- 

6 — Hold a press conference and announce plans to start a 
competition between leading medical schools for the rights 
to your body after you have finished with it. 

7 — Board a jet to Miami and ask the stewardess about the 
weather in Havana. 

8 — Volunteer to give your time to something important in 
your community. 

Although suggestions 1 through 7 are more dramatic and 
Quixote-like, it's probably Number 8 that's the most realistic 
for personal subscription. And one shouldn't have too much 
trouble finding a place to voluntarily hang his beret. For 
America today is by all odds the volunteer capital of the 

In a recent issue of Look, it was reported that there are 
more than a million community volunteer organizations. And 
George Gallup, in a poll which was based on voluntary 
responses, discovered that 69 million adult Americans would 
donate themselves to solve problems in their own commu- 

Although the worth of voluntary action never gets figured 
into the Gross National Product, one Department of Labor 
study estimates that the contribution of voluntary hours might 
add up to about $30 billion in the next 10 years. 

Whether that figure is correct, one can be sure that volun- 
teerism is big business, in its non-profit sort of way. 

Attesting to this is the newly created National Center for 
Voluntary Action*, a private, non-profit organization inspired 
by President Nixon and headed by Henry Ford, from the 
private sector, and spearheaded by George Romney, Secre- 
tary of HUD. Its funding (about $7.5 million) is exclusively 
from private industry and individuals, and its operational arm 
is a group of Volunteer Action Centers set up in cities across 
the nation. 

Basically, NSVA and its VACs are volunteer clearing- 
houses, working in cooperation with established Volunteer 

Bureaus where they exist and independently where BVs do 
not. As of March, 1971, 32 VACs were in operation and 
there were requests for an additional 100. 

The establishment of a program to coordinate volunteer 
public service interest, and its philosophy to work with exist- 
ing volunteer organizations is an outgrowth of the evidence 
that not only do people want to be "somebody," but they are 
searching out ways to turn their concerns into action. 

It is estimated that more than a quarter million U.S. col- 
lege students are currently volunteers in more than 1000 
programs. Often the conditions students see in our ghettos, 
schools, prisons, and mental hospitals have moved them to 
demonstrate for social change. For example students have 
set up such crisis centers as The Place in Burlington, Vt., in 
response to the drug epidemic among their contemporaries. 
It serves those who avoid the traditional agencies and hos- 
pitals for fear of the police. 

Students are increasingly becoming more involved in agen- 
cies like Big Brothers, Head Start and other youth-oriented 
organizations that are familiar in most communities across 
the nation. This interest generally is individual; however, a 
concerted effort of a community of students, such as a fra- 
ternity, could provide much greater service and dramatic 

Philip Wylie. in an article several years ago in the now 
defunct This Week Magazine, reported sadly that it was his 
view that "modern man seems to be risking his humanity 
through non-involvement." 

In essence, the article stated that innumerable schools move 
students on without reference to effort or capability, and that 
such automatic promotion is presumed to prevent trauma. 
Yet, these educators still maintain that they are preparing 
youth for adult life. 

The study said that the young generation's non-involvement 
policies reflect in contemporary dances where each one of 
any pair stands apart from the other with little or no physical 
touch; that protestors seem to be against just about every- 
thing, and for nothing; that modern art is getting less and less 
creative and more and more innocuous; and that this condi- 
tion of non-involvement is producing a faceless generation of 
zeros that devalues our former image. 

There are those who oppose Wylie's view, and point to the 
burgeoning involvement of students in political action, but all 
too often they agree that Wylie's thesis is accurate in assessing 
the broad spectrum of life today. 

The horizons of the volunteer community, however, are 
broadening and becoming more appealing to college students, 
either as individuals or in groups like fraternities. In fact, a 
recent publication of the Center for a Voluntary Society 
graphically illustrates how human resources of individuals 
and groups can be used creatively in the volunteer commu- 
nity. The book, "The Volunteer Community: Creative Use of 
Human Resources," is a tight volume outlining the history 
of voluntarism and democracy. It focuses attention on the 
societal changes affecting voluntarism and the motivational 
dynamics of voluntarism. It lays heavily on the methods for 
continuous training and self-renewal of volunteers and sug- 
gests many areas where human resources are needed and how 
they can provide gratification for the participant. 

Sub-communities of the total volunteer arena where action 
can be found are identified as: recreational, educational, cul-

tural, religious, economic, social control, health, welfare, polit- 
ical, communication services and environmental. 

More specifically, these communities are represented by 
camp programs, libraries, museums, hospitals, homes for the 
aged and homes for children, inner-city community organiza- 
tions, Model Cities' programs, conservation groups, boys' 
clubs, churches, Big Brothers' agencies, YMCA's and hun- 
dreds more. All places where everyone can become a some-

one to 101), working with numbers is different from being a 

Thinking of volunteering as an individual or as a frater- 
nity of individuals, it is important to consider that being a 
somebody is easy once there is the realization that the only 
difference in being not worthy and noteworthy is the little 
letter "e." 

When that 'e' represents enterprise and energy, it can 
make a difference. It might even represent excellence, which 
always is the mark of a somebody.

Fraternities — A Threat to the Individual? 

by Phil Mushnick, 

The college fraternity has constantly come un- 
der the scrutiny of over-generalizing critics. One 
such criticism which has been strewn about with total 
subjectivism is that college fraternities severely limit 
the individual's right to function as an individual, and 
therefore the fraternity becomes a showcase for 
apathetic stagnates. Although the critic is guilty of an 
extreme case of stereotyping, nonetheless there must 
be specific instances where this claim is valid. How- 
ever, the Psi Tetarton Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa 
volunteers to be exhibit "A" in bearing testimony 
against this theory. 

I have witnessed no other institution where the 
individual as a member of a group, has stood out 
greater. In every aspect of on and off campus life in 
Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, Psi Tet exudes with ver- 

Politically, three of the six major offices are held by 
Phi Sigs. Student council meetings, which can be 
attended on a voluntary basis, have Phi Sigs in con- 
stant attendance. Judiciary board officers, off-campus 

Psi Tetarton 73 

housing representatives, and other positions of this 
nature are held by Phi Sigs. Socially, Phi Sigs have 
been responsible for obtaining reputable rock-groups 
for the campus, initiating a contemporary film series, 
and our own house parties have no rivals. 

We also "shine on" in athletics. Every major and 
minor sport on the varsity level at Waynesburg College 
contains on its roster at least one Phi Sig. Our intra- 
mural teams are constant contenders and frequent 
champions. Geographically, our brothers represent 
nearly every mid-Atlantic state. Scholastically, our 
academic quotient led all fraternities last year. Eth- 
nically, we have every major domestic faith repre- 
sented. Civically, we have participated in many charity 
drives in the town of Waynesburg. Finally, our 
Brotherhood is solid without being pretentious. 

The Phi Sigs of Psi Tet bear living testimony that a 
fraternity doesn't necessarily inhibit the individual's 
productiveness, but rather can serve as an incentive 
to produce. 

Beta Tet Alums Grateful 

The Beta Tetarton (Kent State) Alumni Asso- 
ciation would like to take this opportunity to 
extend our sincere appreciation to Brother Larry 
Gaskins, former Chapter Adviser for Beta Tetarton 
Chapter. Brother Gaskins served as Adviser for 5 
years before resigning to accept a new job opportu- 
nity in Michigan. Much of the success which the 
Chapter has enjoyed during recent years is directly 
attributable to Brother Gaskins' effort and dedication. 
We wish him and his wife, Marilyn, the best of luck.

Relevance in the Classroom 
What Does It Really Mean? 

(Continued from Page 6) 

reason, think, analyze, weigh evidence, and solve 
problems goes on forever. There is no quarrel here 
with those who resist being "programmed" for a 
"productive place" in society. But the problems of 
modern life do impinge themselves on the artist or 
the rock musician as well as on the politician or the 
corporation president. The calcified mind cannot cope 
with them, any more than the arthritic body can dodge 
the runaway car.

This year's new initiates are of differ-

which was exhibited by Wayne Warner,

Here at Cornell University the fra- 
ternity has evolved into more than 
the social institution it used to be; the 
type of individual it must attract is now 
diverse in his interests towards his school 
and community, as well as his personal 
life. Phi Sig's combination of Brother- 
hood and social versatility here is ex- 
emplary of the traits a successful frater- 
nity is known for. 

Gamma's strong sense of Brotherhood

^W^ hat do we do around here except 
party and beat the Beta's?" said 
Martin, a pledge. (The Betas are our 
only competitor for the all-year cup in 

"That's a good question," said pledge- 
master Charlie. "I'm not sure I can 
answer it." 

After brief silence, Charlie tried to 
explain something Martin had obviously 
not seen — Brotherhood. Having seen so 
little of it himself during the semester, it 
wasn't an easy feeling to relate. At first, 
Charlie thought of trying to avoid talk- 
ing about the volleyball game where a 
brother walked off the court because an- 
other brother criticized him for doing a 
lousy job; and the time that Brother Doff 

blew up at Brother "Tex" just because he 
asked a simple question; and the time 
everybody said they would help sell 
Christmas trees, but only one or two 
brothers actually did; and the fact that 
because the brothers don't have any 
pride in the house, it looks like a pig 
sty all the time; and the night only five 
or six out of over fifty actives showed 
up for rush; and how everyone is for 
the Little Sister program, yet no one will 
support it: etc. 

Getting his thoughts together, Charlie 
tried to explain to Martin that here at 
Delta chapter we have sort of a "hidden 
Brotherhood" and sometimes it is very 
hard to find — particularly this semester. 
Many of the brothers supply us with an 
over-abundance of apathy and not near 
enough cooperation — which, of course, 
does a pretty good job at hiding Brother- 
hood. Maybe if Martin sticks around 
long enough, he'll find it for a few sec- 
onds and he will answer his own ques- 

As grim as the picture has been 
painted, there is still hope in the new 
semester. A new system of rush prom- 
ises to increase involvement and better 
organization. Rush will be led by the 
chairman and his committee, which con- 
sists of a brother to lead each dorm's 
rush. Pledging will be set up so that 
each pledge can go at his own rate, fin- 
ishing in a minimum of eight weeks. 
Sensitivity sessions might also be in- 
cluded in the new set-up. And. with the 
initiation of over thirty Little Sisters, the 
first on the WVU campus, in January, 
Delta may see a little more participation 
by its actives.

■"Fhe Brothers of Mu Chapter wel- 

corned in the Winter with our annual 
Christmas party. A delicious catered 
dinner was followed by the traditional 
tree trimming and the brothers spent the 
rest of the evening before the blazing 
yule log being entertained by two local 
folksingers. The Christmas party was the 
end of a busy social calendar which 
included three mixers, Homecoming and 
a party at our Alumni Adviser's, Tom 
Curtiss, house, that the brotherhood will 
not soon forget. 

This month the brothers offered the 
house to the Interfraternity Council for 
a Christmas party for the Wharton Com- 
munity project, and the brothers shared 
their Christmas spirits with people from 
the neighborhood. 

Once again Mu Chapter has provided 
the nationally ranked Penn Quakers with 
six of their hoopsters. The returning 
lettermen Steve Batory, Mu '63, Keith 
Hansen, Mu '73 and Bill "Shake and 
Bake" Walters, Mu '72, have been joined 
by a strong and talented sophomore 
contingent, John Jablonski, Mu '74, Jack 
Sonnenberg, Mu '74 and Whitey Varga, 
Mu '74. 

Mu Chapter looks forward to a suc- 
cessful second semester which will in- 
clude the January election of new offi- 
cers, a strong Spring rush and the de- 
lights of Skimmer. The chapter would 
also like to thank the National for their 
selection of Mu for the President's 
Award. Good luck to all chapters in the

/"Greetings from Pi Chapter, Camp 
VJ FuM. 

The ushering in of the new year at 437 
West James brought us many new fel- 
lows. The pledges are hard at work, 
serving cold fellows to the not so sober 
older fellows. 

A most successful rush season ended 
with the acquisition of 24 pledges, the 
largest in Pi Chapter's recent history 
and the largest pledge class taken at F 
& M this year. We feel our success can 
be attributed to several important fac- 
tors: an open house informal smoker, 
mid-week beer parties and bull sessions, 
our outstanding freshman mixer, and 

Congratulations are in order to Bro- 
thers Ned Abrahamsen, Brad Talbot, 
Rod Havriluk and Bill Jones who are 
captains of the soccer, tennis, swimming, 
and golf teams respectively. We wish 
them the best of luck in continuing their 

winning ways. Brother Strittmatter was 
recently elected captain of the Mod 
Squad, Pi's B league basketball entry. 

As was expected, our intramural bas- 
ketball team is mopping up the frater- 
nity league and the bowling champion- 
ship trophy will rest on Pi's mantle in 

Many brothers, pledges and dates re- 
turned here to welcome in the spirited

forward to his inspiring grace and guid- 
ance down the path of life.

TThe last Chapterette dealt mainly 
with new developments in the frater- 
nity system here at U.Va. Devoting space 
to these changes pre-empted description 
of life here at Psi Chapter, which has 
been rewarding and enjoyable all semes- 

Applying the new ideas of fraternity 
life to this year's fall rush, we were 
pleased to find our varied brotherhood 
was as attractive to this first-year class 
as it has been formerly. Psi Chapter 
welcomed 21 pledges with a wild grain 
party which capped the most successful 
rush on the grounds. The general con- 
sensus among our pledges was that the 
ability to develop as an individual was 
guaranteed more at Phi Sig than at any 
other house, and was reflected by the 
brothers during rush. Individual per- 
formances in non-cqnformity during rush 
parties by Brothers, Rossovich, Anderson 
and Coach Knight were especially appre- 
ciated by the brotherhood. 

We have continued our success in 
intramural competition by clinching the 
Second Division championships in Foot- 
ball and Volleyball, and are firmly estab- 
lished in the top ten of fraternity com- 
petition. Although losing 62-14, the 
pledge class exhibited fine spirit and abil- 
ity in the annual Pledge-Brother football 
game. Testimony to their enthusiasm 
were the remarks of many an aching 
brother the following day. We therefore 
look forward to continued success in 
intramural athletics. 

Partying at Virginia is still very much 
in everyone's consideration when choos- 
ing a fraternity, and we spared no effort 
in celebration this year. The emphasis 
this semester was on variety, and Social 

Chairman "Meatball" Waite provided 
the house with a calendar of events 
rivaled by none. We danced to 1950's 
rock and roll, partied with other houses, 
entertained the faculty with great dignity 
at a Christmas cocktail party and steak 
and champagne banquet, and gambled 
at different times throughout the semes- 
ter. Numerous visits to Sweet Briar and 
Mary Washington provided some beauti- 
ful and some not-so-beautiful (particu- 
larly in my case) female companionship. 
And when we remained in Charlottes- 
ville, nightly visits to Poe's brought off 
some great birthday celebrations. We 
were pleased to find brothers from 
other chapters and many of our Alumni 
dropping in to party with us, and we 
extend an invitation for all to continue 
to do so. 

Each Saturday morning finds our 
community service committee struggling 
from bed to coach our underprivileged 
boys' basketball team (underprivileged 
primarily due to the quality of coaching 
they're getting that early in the morn- 
ing), and a big-brother program is in 
the works for next semester. 

Looking back, it's been a great semes- 
ter, and the rest of the year promises to 
be just as wild. As the Wahoos keep 
winning, a trip to the NIT is high on 
the list of Carrot Helm and a lot of 
other basketball freaks.

Cor the second year in a row our fall 
rush program has succeeded in filling 
in the ranks. We are proud(?) to have 
with us 13 new pledges. Rush programs 
here at Cal have had to cope with a 
serious decline in the number of formal 
fall rushees. A serious obstacle to our 
rush has been that tricky and tenacious 
animal, the dormee contractius. This 
amazing creature is faster than a speed- 
ing bullet and more powerful than a 
locomotive. Note: one word of caution 
for rush chairmen — avoid those sneaky 
rushees who get you drunk and force 
you into giving them a bid (We still owe 
Jim one for this). 

Our House didn't finish first in intra- 
murals this year, but we sure had fun. 
The one thing we do excel in is all night 
poker games. Several of our distinguished 
members survived their first, but at great 
personal cost. Speaking of good sports 
we must not fail to mention our steward, 
who got thrown in the showers, when 
we discovered that he didn't have enough 

Our House has certainly been a na- 
tional one in the fullest sense of the 
word. We have had a visit from a group 
of traveling card sharks from Washing- 



ton, and a prolonged visit from a 
Georgia engineer, and a visit from a 
cute Connecticut pussy. We will never 
forget our visitor from Alpha, and we 
are equally certain he will never re- 
member. We are sad to say that he 
discovered the facts of life — you can 
not have your cake and eat it to! 

Our Little Sisters program has been a 
great success. Our V.P. just turned on 
his old charm and we had girls banging 
on the door. A parting suggestion for 
our brothers is that there is nothing like 
a good group of Little Sisters to cheer 
up a House, help with rush, and have 
parties with till 3:00 A.M.!

Call quarter is without a doubt the 
■^busiest quarter of the year. The num- 
ber of activities is endless. It all starts 
off with the fall rush early in the quar- 
ter. This fall rush, however, turned out 
to be most disappointing, for we only 
managed to net three pledges. Obvi- 
ously something wasn't working, and was 
probably our rush girls which we ac- 
quired in large part from the efforts of 
our Little Sisters. Our bands were fan- 
tastic this quarter, so we'll keep our 
same social chairman. 

Well, with rush out of the way we 
had to begin our efforts toward studies 
and toward athletics. As far as inter- 
fraternity sports go this quarter we only 
had football and volleyball, and we did 
pretty well in both events. In football 
we were six and one, and made it to the 
| playoffs, when we were promptly elim- 
I inated in the first game. In volleyball we 
I were fifteen and three, and made it to 
the playoffs, when we again displayed 
l our natural ability to choke. 

With the athletic events at an end, the 
j brothers had an opportunity to release 
! their frustrations (which we built up 
from the athletic events) on three 
pledges who were initiated this quarter. 
As it turns out initiation was kind of 
disappointing, one of the neophytes re- 
belled, broke down, or threatened to 
quit — which makes you stop to think 
that the brothers are really apathetic or 
real pansy. However, the neophytes 
turned out to be a pretty decent bunch 
of brothers. One even got elected to the 
Student Government. 

Enough of the initiates, back to the 
brothers. They've been pretty busy this 
quarter with Homecoming and a few 
other activities like sailing and skydiv- 
ing (fantastic sport, ought to be on a 
varsity level). Getting back to Home- 
coming activities, we worked on a 
homecoming display and a wreck for 
the "Reck Parade"; for two whole days

"The men of Xi Deuteron began an- 
other promising quarter at the Uni- 
versity of Tennessee with the initiation 
of ten new brothers. This ceremony held 
special significance for us, since among 
these men was our chapter's one thou- 
sandth initiate. Our ever-gTOwing chapter 
proudly boasts ten gentlemen aspiring to 
wear the Phi Sigma Kappa jewels. 

Our All-Sing competition proved more 
than successful with our first place trophy 
maintaining our Number One position on 
campus. Likewise abetting in this effort 
were our intramural activities. 

Our chapter celebrated a three day 
Carnation Ball holiday at the winter re- 
sort in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Some 200 
brothers, alums, and dates enjoyed skiing, 
bobsledding, ice skating, and some all- 
season frolics. Culminating the holiday 
was a cocktail party, champagne dinner, 
and entertainment by a nationally known 
recording group. 

Phi Sigs at U. T. are especially proud 
of their Little Sister program. We have 
approximately 25 campus beauties who 
help with rush and generally liven up the 
fraternity with their charm and grace. 
We hold our Little Sister rush every fall 
quarter and usually invite about 100 to 
150 young ladies for two or three nights 
of social interaction. From this group we 
select about 20 new Little Sisters based 
upon attractiveness, personality, and 
little sister potential. 

Our Little Sisters sponsor our annual 
Christmas party as well as hay rides, 
Sunday breakfasts, and beer "busts." They 
also help brothers in meeting other girls 
and getting dates. During the summer 
months we have a Phi Sigma Kappa 
Little Sister Newsletter which serves to 
keep the girls informed as to fraternity 
or little sister activities. 

We encourage all chapters to organize 
a Little Sister program due to the bene- 
fits the chapter receives from such a 
program. If we at Xi Deuteron may help 
in this initiation, feel free to contact us.

Ohio State University 

T^espite a poor rush last fall, things 
appear to be on the upswing this 
year at Pi Deut. 

Many things have contributed to this, 
the most important being a true feeling 
of Brotherhood, something which has 
been missing here for the past year. 

The addition of Brother Dave Kemp 
from Phi Triton at Idaho State has pro- 
duced a much needed incentive to get 
pledges and keep the house clean. A big 
thanks should also go to Tom McDon- 
ald, our new alumni adviser, who is 
constantly at the house and helping us 
in our rushing techniques. He is also 
aiding us in contacting area Alumni and 
getting them involved in our efforts to 
get Pi Deut back on its feet. Butch 
Harshman, also a Pi Deut Alumnus, has 
also helped out considerably. 

Last fall was very productive, athletic- 
wise. The football team made it into the 
playoffs, although losing in the first 
round. We won two trophies in volley-

ball, the active team finishing first in 
Division Two and the pledge team end- 
ing up second in Division One. The Pi 
Deut bowling team got us our third 
trophy of the quarter, finishing in a tie 
for third out of 30 teams. 

Our three newest pledges are Tom 
Target, Mike Zigavits and Tom Baugh- 
man, shortstop for the Buckeye baseball 

At the annual Christmas party last 
December, Colleen Howard was crowned 
Moonlight Girl. She is a member of 
Zeta Tau Alpha and is a junior from 

This quarter we are trying to achieve 
a concentrated rush during the first three 
weeks of the quarter with the coopera- 
tion of our Little Sisters and area 
Alumni. Under the leadership of Bro- 
ther Mike Morris, our rush program 
should prove to be most fruitful. 

We would like to invite all Alumni 
to come and help out in building Pi 
Deuteron into a strong chapter once 
again. If you live in the central Ohio 
area, drop in and meet the Brothers. 
Those of you farther away send us a 
note. We would appreciate any ideas or 
suggestions you may have on rush.

University of Southern California 

WfE at the Omega Deuteron house 
held our 20th annual Snow Party 
this fall. Due to the hard work of the 
brothers the party was a smashing suc- 
cess. We filled our court yard with 66,000 
lbs. of snow and built a bobsled run 
from our roof. Snowballing and snow- 
men were the order of the day, along 
with dancing in our dining hall with a 
live band. With a fire blazing in our liv- 
ing room couples sat on water beds 
placed around the fire place. Each bro- 
ther decorated his room and door with 
Christmas decorations to add to the 
holiday feeling. A special thanks to our 
Moonlight Girls, without whom we 
could never have decorated the house 
or have had enough food, with 600 
people attending. 

Our pledge class of 15 has been a 
spirited group that have earned such 
nick names as George of the Jungle, 
Row God, and Hands. So far they have 
had a pledge exchange with the strong 
Delta Gamma house on the 73 foot lux- 
ury yacht of Pledge President Doug 
Kemp. They also have had a pledge 
dinner and an up-coming retreat to 
Pledge Dick Lombardi's beach house. 

Thanks from the brothers of Omega 
Deuteron to Dean Torrance (of Jan and 
Dean fame) and Steve Ball for hosting 
the Fall '71 pledge-active party in their 
home, the mansion of the late Humph- 
rey Bogart. 

Plans are being made for the Alumni 
Monte Carlo party coming up in March. 
Being such a large affair arrangements 
must be made early. The entire house is 
converted into a casino with the brothers 
running the tables and our Moonlight 
Girls as barmaids. 

A special congratulations to Brother 
Mike Swaderski for being named catcher 
of our NCAA champion baseball team 
again, and to Mark Pascoo for his con- 
tinuing hard work as head of our com- 
munity involvement program.

Purdue University 

/""■hanging its rush technique a little, 
Delta Triton has recently taken four 
pledges. Several of our rush parties have 
been in the format of assembling ten or 
so rushees in our living room, giving 
them a taste of our outstanding talent 
("Duke of Earl" and "Blue Moon" per- 
formed live by Jackie and the Phive 
Sigs) and then going to study rooms, 
watching the tube, or staying in the 
living room and just rapping. Popcorn 
and soft drinks are provided by the 
house and the popcorn is fixed by our 
Little Sisters, who are invited to almost 
all of our rush functions. We are still 
in the heat of rush season, planning 
formal pledging for mid-January. 

While our scholarship is nothing to 
brag about, we are especially proud of 
Brother Tom Howatt, who has recently 
been awarded a full-tuition grant for 
Spring semester. Tom has been on the 
Dean's List for the past two semesters 
and was recently elected Delta Triton's 

Our New Initiates have taken right to 
fraternity life, two of them now holding 
the offices of Sentinel and Rush Chair- 
man, with a third serving as Assistant 
Treasurer. And speaking of house offices 
. . . special congratulations are due to 
Al Bower who, after losing in nine con- 
secutive elections over the past two 
years, was just elected Secretary — unani- 

We would like to extend our sincerest 
thanks to our brothers at Illinois, who 
treated our Little Sisters very well last 
December. When the girls came back 
from their walkout, they had nothing 
but good things to say about the bro- 
thers there and all the time and energy 
expended to make sure that they had a 
good time. We appreciate hospitality like 
that and will do our best to return it, 
if we are ever asked. 

We are still in the process of re- 
modeling our house. Last Spring, it was 
the tube room and living room; in the 
Fall, we had our second floor head re- 
done, and we painted the outside of the 
house and the dining room; now we are 

working on the conference room and are 
having the kitchen completely redone, 
changing it from a mass-feeding atmos- 
phere to a homey, comfortable room. 
We are presently working on financing 
for an addition to be built this Spring 
and Summer, but John Van Horn, our 
new adviser, assures us that the addition 
won't be built without a successful rush.

Montana State University 

^eta Triton of Montana State Uni- 
^versity entered the fall quarter dis- 
covering the campus enrollment in the 
annual all Greek formal rush was one 
half the previous year participants. Un- 
der these limitations twenty new mem- 
bers were pledged by the Phi Sigs which 
could be deemed highly successful. One 
conclusion made was that informal 
rushes take less time, cost less, and are 
more enjoyable than formal rushes, yet 
are just as successful. 

Continuing in the quarter, Zeta Tri- 
ton entered a period of questioning the 
necessity of many rules and codes guid- 
ing the behavior and conduct of the 
brothers. A general retreat is planned for 
the beginning of the winter quarter to 
analyze these problems more closely 
and to find solutions. 

Success can be attributed to the re- 
vised Moonshine program which con- 
sists of an elected Phi Sig coordinator 
directing and organizing the Moon- 
shiners in addition to active Phi Sigs be- 
ing elected "Big Brothers" to the Moon- 

The quarter was topped off with the 
House's sleeping dorm being completely 
destroyed due to an electric blanket 
burning out of control. Luckily, the fire 
was stopped before the whole house was

r always wondered what living in a 
mausoleum would be like. Well here 
I sit, the day after finals, among the 
debris of the final fling of the semester, 
talking to the empty walls in this omin- 
ously empty house. I've never seen so 
many leave so fast, in so many direc- 
tions in all my life. 

Besides the annual plans for a mas- 
sive New Year's Eve Bash in Sun Valley,

Harry Bludworth, and three other bro- 
thers are planning on journeying to

niques that will help us in our up-coming 
second semester rush. 

As far as the past semester is con- 
cerned, Phi Sigs at Idaho State are be- 
coming stronger and more united. The 
loss of thirty actives at the end of last 
year through third degree hasn't dimin- 
ished our spirit in the least. On the 
contrary, our reduced numbers have 
forced us to work closer together to 
attain our goals. An example of this is 
our winning float and skit during Home- 

Our Moonlight Girl Dinner-Dance 
was at the country club on October 
29th. We elected Miss Terry Flint as our 
new Moonlight Girl. Terry has been 

indispensible to Phi Triton since becom- 
ing a Little Sister last year. 

Our local Founder's Day Dinner- 
Dance was held on November 19th, 
exactly twenty-two years after Phi 
Sigma Kappa became the first fraternity 
on the Idaho State campus. 

On December 11th we had an 
Alumni-Parents Christmas Party to show 
our appreciation for all the support they 
have given us over the past year, espe- 
cially with our remodeling project last 
summer. Then, on the 12th Phi Triton's 
Little Sisters came over and we ex- 
changed gifts and went on a carolling 
tour of the neighborhood.

Phi Triton's Little Sisters at Christmas Parry 

Winter, 1972 


Hobart College 

TThe Brothers of Psi Triton extend a 
fraternal hello to all of our brothers 
in the Triple T's. We here at Hobart 
have been busy preparing for our com- 
ing rush campaign. Unfortunately, our 
rush chairman was injured in a motor- 
cycle accident when he saw a little fat 
bear standing by the side of the road. 
This has made our rushing a little hectic, 
but I'm sure that with the fine help of 
our involved underclassmen the frater- 
nity shall thrive in the future. 

With rushing in mind the boys here 
have begun several campaigns to en- 
hance the House's reputation. Several 
weeks ago, we won the annual Fall Na- 
tionals under the guidance of F. Ham- 
my. That was followed at the end of the 
term by the announcement F. Eddie has 
once again led his graduating class in 
scholarship. At the beginning of this 
term, Eric Spungin announced that he 
would lead the school campaign dealing 
with drug education. 

We wish all our brothers good luck 
and wish our close brothers of Gamma 
all the best in the coming year and hope 
to see them soon.

Florida Southern College 

£"\mega Triton is to be congratulated 
for sponsoring a needy child from 
the Christian Children's fund. Clayton, 
our sponsored child from Arizona, sent 
us a Christmas card showing his appre- 
ciation. Everyone enjoyed reading it. It's 
really worth it. 

We initiated five new members dur- 
ing the fall semester. They are Don 
Dunham. Glenn Ellis. Rick Heuser, Tom 
Miles, and John Valerino. We've really 
worked hard to get new members. At 
the start of last year we had seven bro- 
thers. We now have twenty brothers, 
with our biggest rush yet to come. This 
is the biggest improvement on campus. 
Spring rush begins the week after Christ- 
mas vacation and we feel that we have 
a good program planned. We feel that 
sincere friendship is a lot better than im- 
pressing people with fancy parties. We 
party as much as anyone, though, but 
not with the idea of giving a hard-sell 
pitch to our invited friends. With our 
big increase in members, I guess the 
people appreciate being treated as friends 
and not numbers. 

One party was nearly disastrous. We 
had a party at a Florida ranch and played 
a rough game of football. Afterwards, 
we had a championship " 'Rasslin" 
match. Thirty-seven people were killed, 


there were ninety-seven broken arms 
and legs, and bruised everything. I hope 
the ranch owner doesn't mind having a 
drunken horse; the horse didn't seem to 
mind a bit (PUN!). 

The Phi Sigs seem to be gaining a 
little power on campus. We have officers 
in honorary fraternities, a senator, Greek 
council officer, and we hope afehampion- 
ship basketball team (we lost last year 
by one point when yours truly blew two 
foul shots with seven seconds to go). 
I've heard a lot of comments that the 
school paper is always about the Phi 
Sigs. I can't understand. The sports 
publicity director, two columnists, the 
photo editor, four copy editors, and two 
reporters are Phi Sigs, plus our sweet- 
heart who is a reporter . . . and our 
adviser is a photo-journalist for the daily 
newspaper. We're not biased. Just rum- 
ors, Hey Moon.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute 

W^e at Gamma Tet find ourselves in 
the midst of a very successful year 
here at RPI. One of the major problems 
we faced at the beginning of the school 
year was a noticeable lack of true broth- 
erly concern for each other. In an effort 
to deal with this problem, we held a week- 
end retreat in early October at a camp- 
site in central Vermont. We spent our 
time working in small, sensitivity-type 
groups holding deep, serious discussions 
about ourselves and our feelings, our 
fellow brothers, and our fraternity. We 
all felt a little closer to each other at 
the end, and these feelings held true in 
the subsequent months back at the chap- 
ter house. 

This was evidenced most clearly by 
our successful rushing program. Em- 
phasis was placed on getting to know 
the freshmen on a one-to-one, rather 
than a group, basis. A full one-third of 
the freshmen rushees designated Phi 
Sig as one of their top six (out of 25) 
preferences. Bids are given out in Feb- 
ruary, and a strong pledge class of 15-20 
great men is expected. Congratulations 
to Rush Chairman Larry Brody for a 
fine job. 

We are also endeavoring to set up 
a Little Sisters club at the House. It's 
Brother Ken Hart's "pet" project, and 
he's already devoted to it a great deal 
of time and hard work (hard work?). 
Most of the girls are from Green Moun- 
tain College, which is a fine place to 
visit. (Any organizational hints from 
chapters with established Little Sisters 
programs would be greatly appreciated.) 

The social calendar has been, and will 
be, quite full all year. The fall's major 
events included RPI's Oktoberfest 

Weekend, an outrageous Halloween 
party, and Phi Sig's traditional Christ- 
mas Weekend, with our annual party for 
a group (gang?) of underprivileged kids 
from Troy. On tap for the spring semes- 
ter are RPI's Saturnalia and Soiree 
Weekends, a neighborhood barbeque, 
and our first annual Founders Day- 
Alumni Weekend celebration. The big 
event takes place March 17-19, and 
we're really looking forward to having 
all our Alums come back to visit "the 
old. house" again. — by Bill Bowlby

East Tennessee State University 

WT'hen we started school September 
15 this year, we had five pledges to 
go active. They are Stephen E. Flack,

We had our fall rush approximately 
October 6 with fair success. We signed 
eleven pledges during our efforts; how- 
ever, only six of them qualified to go 
active by making their grades. They will 
go active around January 15, 1972. They 
are Larrby Brown, Charlie White, Paul 
Robinson, Rick Riddle, Steve Dofferon, 
and Kirk Burruss. 

The only new rushing technics we 
have started using is requiring each 
pledge to get one rushee interested 
enough to pledge for the next quarter. 
This has worked very well for us and 
we will continue this policy in the fu- 

Steve Dofferon is our only outstand- 
ing athlete. He has been tagged by our 
football coaches here at E.T.S.U. to be 
an All-American performer at linebacker 
next year or the year after. 

Academically we placed fourth in fra- 
ternities among 10. We had a 2.345 aver- 
age this past Fall quarter. 

We just recently installed new offi- 
cers. They are President, Dave Willis; 
Vice President, Harry Newberry; Secre- 
tary, Stephen E. Flack, Treasurer, Bill 
Justis; Steward, Greg Crane. 

Homecoming this year was one of 
our most successful as far as participa- 
tion is concerned. We tied Murray St. 
6-6 in the afternoon; however, made up 
for that disappointment that night. We 
had a wing-ding with a band called "The 
Gold Rush" and there were approx- 
imately 150 people present.

mural standings approximately 40 points 
behind the leader, PKA; however, we 
are picked to win the basketball pro-

University of Houston 

Cta Tet has had probably the most 
challenging and fulfilling semester 
in our 15 years on UH campus. 

Losing our two story mansion to 
progress just before Fall rush we had to 
retreat to the confines of a two bedroom 
apartment. Yet on a campus of 14 fra- 
ternities, the majority of which are well 
housed, we placed second in number of 

Operating out of an apartment for the 
last four months has cramped our style 
a bit, but our spirit of Brotherhood is 
stronger than ever, as we endeavor to 
fulfill our Cardinal Principles and pass 
them on to new members of the Ever- 
growing Throng. 

And now as the close of the Fall 
semester approaches, it is a time of self- 
evaluation for Eta Tet. In struggling with 
the housing problem, we seem to have 
internalized ourselves too much. 

We had a strong intramural program 
which Brothers Dave Laich and Rick 
Langley should be commended for. We 
had an excellent rush effort which all 
the brothers should be commended for. 
We had a good constructive and success- 
ful pledge program headed by Brother 
Steve Clark. In scholarship we expect to 
win our regional honors and keep our 
UH All-Fraternity Scholarship Trophy 
which we have held for 4 consecutive 
semesters now. And we have definitely 
enriched our bonds of brotherhood. 

There are, however, all eternal goals. 
During the Spring Semester we hope to 
make ourselves an asset to society. The 
opportunities are limitless in Houston. 
If we succeed in this goal, and find a 
house, we will have completed a success- 
ful year and laid a good foundation for 
our young chapter to build on. 

We would like to congratulate our 
new initiates, Brothers Mike Sellars, Ken 
Horwedil, Jack Todd, Tommy Forner, 
Jake Ihrig, John Wright, and Jeff Brink- 
ley, and thank them for their contribu- 
tions to our chapter this semester.

Southern Illinois University 

"The Kappa Tetarton chapter at 
Southern Illinois University had a 
fulfilling quarter this fall. The football 
team, led by Jim Kohrig, was over- 
thrown for school intramural champion- 
ship. The team received second place in 
school intramurals, took Greek champ- 
ionship in football and finished with a 
fourteen and two record. Jim Kohrig, 
captain of the team, is now president of

Along with the past football events 
came the needed Little Sister program; 
if not needed, always appreciated. The 
brothers and Little Sisters, after reorgan- 
izing the program, put on the final 
touches with a Christmas party and ex- 
change of simple gifts, which proved to 
be brimming with grins and frowns. 

With constantly changing rush pro- 
grams, we plan on a different approach 
this quarter, most possibly using a snow- 
ball effect. As an example of this, the 
pledges give us names of two prospec- 
tives. We visit the prospectives, and after 
orientating and possibly rushing them, 
we receive two more names from each 
individual, and so on and on into a 
geometrically increasing number of

of both the brothers and Little Sisters 
at the end of each fall quarter. This

younger children of our families. 

We are looking forward to a con-

Chi Tetarton is especially proud of 
Terry Nihart who made "Who's Who on

Terry has worked hard for Western and 
greatly deserves the honor. Even though 
the semester ended on a happy note the 
brothers are sad to lose three brothers 
because of graduation, and we would like 
to extend our congratulations to Bob 
Ondrovick, Jim White and Pat Anthony. 

A special request to all our alumni of 
Chi Tetarton out there . . . plan on visit- 
ing the house Winter Semester '72. I'm 
sure the house has never looked this 
good and with the memory of the old 
house on 446 Stanwood it should be a 
nice surprise. If it's not possible to stop 
by, we would appreciate a letter to con- 
firm old or new addresses, so we can 
up-date our alumni files . . . they are 
almost useless to us now. 

The brothers would like to send a 
special thank-you to Pi Pentaton for 
their great hospitality while hosting the 
Region IV football tournament. The 
brothers enjoyed themselves immensely, 
but regret that Pi Pentaton suffered losses 
of valuable significance. We have no 
knowledge that any articles were brought 
back to Western by our brothers. Glad 
to have you back, Lammy!

he hopes will be as much of an experi-

We will conclude with some choice 
happenings from around the House. 
Brother Bob Sperling recently discovered 
a new passage to the basement when a 
portion of the floor gave way. He was 
not hurt but was quoted with the follow-

Brothers Larry Little, Bill Buge, and 
Vern Biaett have brought a cowboy

was known to have made the same com-

bucked off a wild horse at the recent 
University of Utah Rodeo where he was 
representing Gamma Pentaton in the 
fraternity division. Last but not least we 
would like to further congratulate Larry

Drexel University 

/"Greetings Phi Sigs everywhere! Fall 
term at Eta Pentaton has been a 
great one. Under the new rush program 
we obtained 24 new pledges with Ben 
Sokolowski as our Rush Chairman. For 
the first time in a number of years we 
had a winning season in football. Our 
coach was Ray Dombkiewicz who will 
also be our coach in basketball this 
winter. Homecoming was a great success 
this year with a well attended alumni 
party. We managed to take second 
place with our Homecoming skit and 
third place with our display. 

Socially things have been improving. 
Before fall term we only had monaural 
music piped through the chapter house, 
but we have converted that into stereo 
and we now hear the right channel in 
the living room and the left channel in 
the basement, a truly fine sounding 
system. Our Christmas Party was a great 
success and our tree was beautiful even 
after the strung popcorn was eaten. 

Amazing things have happened at the 
house ... as amazing as finding a dia- 
mond ring in a haystack, or taking a 
dry shower on the second floor, or 
annihilating a parking meter, or Lumpy 
buying Stoney a new car. And we have 
a drive going to collect cigarettes, etc. 
for needy families in our community. 

So, if you're ever in the Philadelphia 
area, please stop and see us as our doors 
are always open. In fact that's how we 
lost our color television last year.

Indiana University of Pennsylvania 

The brothers of Indiana University 

have been stricken by grief due to 
the loss of Brother William Lewis in a 
helicopter crash in Vietnam. He was one 
of the finest brothers to have been asso- 
ciated with the Phi Sigs of Theta Penta- 
ton. It will be a long time before the 
memories and thoughts of him are for- 
gotten. To honor our late brother we 
plan to dedicate our new library room 
to his name. 

Among things that are happening here 
at Indiana with the Phi Sigs are the 
completion of our philanthropic projects 
for the semester. It consisted of collect- 
ing money for two local schools for the 
retarded and sponsoring Christmas part- 
ies at each of the schools. The parties 
were a tremendous success, not only in 
making the children a little happier over 
Christmas, but also in showing the com- 
munity that the fraternity is concerned 
for others. 

We are proud to announce the initia- 
tion of six new brothers; Dave Acker, 
Terry Britton, Bill Conally, Carl Meto- 
sky, Ed Rickel and Frank Winters. With 
our pledges initiated we have already 
begun our rush functions. The crowd 
getter for us in spring semester is our 
Pajama Party which will be followed by 
our Casino Night. The outlook is good 
for us again this spring. 

It should be mentioned that our 
Homecoming float placed fourth runner 
up entitling us to $125 in prize money. 
Also to be mentioned is that our pre- 
diction was right — we beat Gamma Hex- 
aton in our annual football clash, the 
score being 14-0 Theta Pentaton.

California State College at Fullerton 

Tota Pentaton has been going through 
many changes recently. We have 
elected new officers. The new President 
is Mark Currier. 

The brothers of Phi Sigma Kappa and 
the students at Cal-State Fullerton were 
greatly saddened by the deaths of the 
three assistant football coaches recently. 
The coaches, Joe O'Hara, Dallas Moon 
and Bill Hannah, were enroute to San 
Luis Obispo to scout Cal State's next 
foe, when the chartered aircraft crashed 
outside Santa Barbara, killing all three 
coaches plus the pilot. 

The football season was exciting as 
the Cal-State Titans lost their final 
league game and the league title also. 
We are all proud of Brother Len Gaeta 
for his outstanding effort to the team at 
running back. 



The brothers here are starting to real- 
ize diversity among the members. I think 
we now are opening the door to new 
ideas and changes within the fraternity. 
I think a change is inevitable at Iota 
Pentaton, if we are to be relevant to a 
changing society. 

Iota Pentaton would like to wish 
everyone much brotherhood, peace and 
happiness throughout the new year.

Ferris State College 

TThe brothers of Lambda Pentaton 
are preparing for what we hope will 
be our largest and best winter term ever 
for pledging new members. 

Last fall term's open smoker was a 
complete success, and a large part of 
the credit goes to Brother Dave Kum- 
mer, rush chairman, for his unselfish 
devotion to Phi Sigma Kappa. Also, we 
extend a great deal of thanks to our 
Little Sisters for their generous assist- 
ance. Interest in Phi Sigma Kappa here 
at Ferris is running high among this 
year's freshmen, from which a large part 
of our new members are rushed and 
from which we anticipate a large pledge 
class for winter term. This can happen, 
only if every member works to keep 
this interest alive in our rushees and 

Homecoming last fall was again an- 
other great festival for the brothers and 
alumni here at Ferris. Our intramural 
team won two trophies at the Greek 
Games prior to Homecoming, and many 
thanks to Brother Jerry Schulz for show- 
ing up in the nick of time. Although our 
queen candidate did not place on the 
queen's court, we all agree ours was the 
best choice for queen. The Homecoming 
float also did not place with the winners, 
but everybody had a great time building 
it and received many favorable com- 
ments on its originality for the theme 
of "Great Inventions." We all agreed a 
commode was a great invention. Also, 
the Homecoming party that night in 
Cadillac was a wild smash featuring 
Randy "Doc" Dockery on the drums 
and provided pleasant surroundings for 
the brothers and alumni to get to know- 
one another.

Clarion State College 

A nother new semester is about to 
begin here at CSC and we hope 
that it will be a very fruitful one, both 
for the local chapter and for all our 
brothers across the country. Most of us 
are back for the new term, even though 
we lost a few along the way. 

Our past term has been a very busy 
one for us, but we feel that it has paid 
off. Our fall rush brought us eight new 
brothers, and even though it is a small 
pledge class for some chapters, it was 
the second largest pledge class on camp- 
us (out of 9 fraternities), and the largest 
group taken by Nu Pent in quite a while. 
We feel that with the Clarion I.F.C. vot- 
ing to start open rush in the upcoming 
semester, we can expand our Brother- 
hood even more. 

Another Homecoming has passed, but 
this year we have something by which 
to remember it. We were able to take 
second place in the fraternity division for 
the float competition in the annual 
Homecoming parade (if you remember, 
in the last SIGNET I told you that we 
could do it.). In addition to building a 
float, we became more active and partici- 
pated in the Autumn Leaf Festival that 
is run in conjunction with the commu- 
nity during the week preceding Home- 
coming weekend. The brothers assembled 
a dunking booth (one where you throw a 
baseball, hit a small target, and a brother 
falls into the water.), and even though 
we were only open half of the week, we 
were able to make a nice profit for our 
Housing Fund (in the hope that we will 
be able to get a house in the not too 
distant future). The booth not only 
brought money to the chapter, but helped 
to improve community relations with the 

After a long delay, we were finally 
able to get our desk blotters printed, 
and distributed to everyone on campus. 
We have been soliciting blotters and 
giving them out on campus for a few 
years now, and everybody has his desk 
adorned with our new edition. 

Our final project for the semester was 
to help collect for a local hospital in 
connection with WCCB radio, the col- 
lege station. One of our brothers, Bernie 
"Big Bern" Kusibab, went on the air in 
an around-the-clock marathon to raise 
money for the hospital. We were able 
to help the total by about SHOO, nearly 
all of which was collected on campus. 
At the same time we congratulate "Big 
Bern" for being able to stay on the air 
for over four days, actually a total of 
101 continuous broadcasting hours. 


Northern Illinois University 

/^reetings, Brothers: 
^ We, the brothers of Pi Pent, would 
like to wish all our brothers a big wel- 
come to come and see our home at 
Northern Illinois University. And especi- 
ally this year because we bought our 
home valued at S325,O00. A big thanks 
to all who made this dream a reality. 

Although this year's rush was not 
our best, we did find out one thing that 
could help out other chapters. This is 
to explain all the details, especially finan- 
cial obligations twice if necessary, so 
problems won't arise in the middle of 
the pledging period. Also this year we 
put out a pamphlet describing our fra- 
ternity to men in the dorms, finding out 
that this helped when these men came 
to the house. 

This year our team was especially ac- 
tive on the football scene. In the Region 


Pi Pentaton's Homecoming Float took first place 

IV Football Tournament we took first 
once again. (Attention Region IV Chap- 
ters; One more win and the trophy is 
ours.) . . . plus we hope everyone had 
a good time during the Tournament and 
the party afterwards. 

Not only in football did we bring 
fame to the Phi Sig name, but we spread 
it all over campus. We did this by win- 
ning first place with our float in this 
year's Homecoming Parade. With AO 
we helped raise money, so that children 
not as well off as we are could have a 
Merrier Christmas. So long for now, 
Brothers, and don't forget to visit our 
house if you are in the vicinity of De 
Kalb, because our home is your home.

Our Little Sister program is a major

ton Chapter at Robert Morris College 
hope that all brothers had a Merry 
Christmas and that the coming year will 
be another prosperous year for Phi 
Sigma Kappa. 

This past fall has been an active one 
for our chapter here in Pittsburgh. For 
the third consecutive year we have re- 
tained our championship trophy in Rob- 
ert Morris's Greek Bowl football game. 
This year's victory came at the expense 
of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. Coached 
by Brother Bill Butter and quarterbacked 
by Brother Bob Sauer, the Phi Sigs 
scored in the first half and held for the 
final victory. Congratulations to Theta 
Pentaton for their hard fought victory 
over the brothers of Gamma Hexaton; 
all we can say is "wait until next year 
when you visit us." 

This fall we have inducted eleven new 
brothers into Phi Sigma Kappa. This 
was the first pledge class under the new 
M.O.D. pledging program. Of course, 
there were a few rough spots in this new 
technique of pledging, but Brother Nick 
Evanovich, M.O.D. Chairman, and Bro- 
ther Bernie Caplan. his assistant, were 
strong and dedicated enough to this new 
system to iron them out. 

The brothers have initiated a new 
program at Robert Morris, a Little Sis- 
ters of the Triple T's organization. Like 
many other chapters we have decided 
this would be a major step forward and 
be very beneficial. Our three charter 
members are Emily Sestric, Joyce D'- 
Agostino and Angela Stasik. We feel 
these girls will be great workers in our 


fraternity and are confident that this 
program will be a success at Robert 
Morris. We are also having an open 
house this winter for the parents to visit 
our fraternity house, and become better 
acquainted with the other brothers and 
their families. In the future we hope to 
have a parents' organization. 

The most important community proj- 
ects have been our annual drive for the 
Childrens Hospital and our annual visit 
to Mercy Hospital to pass out toys to 
all the children. This year newly in- 
ducted Frank Bruscemi, who was also 
Pledge Class President, dressed as Jolly 
Old Saint Nick and did an excellent job 
at cheering up the children.

voted in by the brotherhood. Although 
physical hazing was eliminated before 
we became a colony, the new system dis- 
cards the inconveniences which pledges

cooperation between brothers and 
pledges, rather than forced work from

but with membership approaching 1000, 
pressure is being put on the administra-

fraternities and sororities will be able to

The Grand Chapter has just completed a survey 
of colleges and universities in the United States 
and Canada to assist us in determining our expansion 
policy for the coming years. The results of this survey 
were most encouraging and indicated the need for 
more thorough investigation of our expansion pros- 

The Grand Council at its January meeting author-

colonization program. The Council selected Brother 
Jim Murman, Beta Tetarton '68, to serve temporarily 
as director of expansion. Brother Murman formerly 
served the fraternity as field representative and assist- 
ant executive director during 1969-71.

to assist in our expansion program this year. We are 
particularly interested in receiving information about 
campuses that would make good locations for Phi Sig 
Chapters. We are also attempting to locate Phi Sigma 
Kappa brothers who have transferred to campuses 
where we do not have Phi Sig Chapters. If you should

Brothers Come Through When Needed 

/"*\n January 24, 1972, six brothers from Gamma Hexaton 
^"^ spent the entire day helping to reorganize Headquarters. 
The six brothers are Dave Amy, George Fox, Harry Hagger- 
man, Mike Maiolo, Mike Martin and Mike Nolder. Under 
the leadership of the past President of Gamma Hexaton and 
current Chapter Consultant, Jim Borgan, the men worked di- 
ligently to accomplish our goal of physical reorganization in 
one working day. Offices were rearranged, desks moved, filing 
cabinets moved from one floor to another, heavy printing 
equipment moved to another area, ritual equipment secured, 
and a general cleanup of the sun porch, which is to be con- 
verted into a small museum. 

If the brothers of Gamma Hexaton had not come to the 
rescue, it would have been an expensive and time consuming 
procedure to hire professional movers for this huge task. 

What's That? Never Saw It! 

\/l ailed to all chapters last Fall with a covering descrip- 
tive letter, exploited in Viewpoint, shown and described 
in the Fall SIGNET and pushed to a "fair thee well" by 
Chapter Consultants on their visits, this is the heart-rending 
reaction we get from brothers visiting Headquarters, when 
we ask them if the Phi Sig Operations Manual has answered 
many of their questions . . . which it does, if read. 

Your National can and does provide you with all conceiv- 
able kinds of help . . . and "tools" for successful operation, 
but it cannot force you to acquaint yourselves with AND 
USE them. The Manual is furnished not merely for the bene- 
fit of a few officers, to be stashed away, never again to see 
the light of day. It should be made available to ALL mem- 
bers of the chapter ... in fact, you should insist that they 
read it through. You may just find a few "acres of diamonds" 
in it that will make yours a much stronger chapter. 

On Page 14 of the Fall SIGNET you will find a listing of 
all the subjects covered in the 200-plus page volume. What 
more can we at National do? 

Once again, the bonds of brotherhood were strengthened and 
a group of dedicated Phi Sigs from a fine chapter performed 
an outstanding service to "your National." 

As the brothers of Gamma Hexaton were departing, it was 
pleasing to note the tone of the conversation which reflected 
an attitude of "our National" and not "Hey, we did this for 
National; now what is National going to do for us?" It is 
obvious that this chapter membership recognizes the values 
of "their National." 

Again, our thanks to the brotherhood of Gamma Hexaton 
in this most important endeavor. We at Headquarters feel 
confident that we will be able to streamline many of our 
services to our chapters and Alumni Clubs, as well as to our 
individual brothers as a result of this physical rearrangement.

ggr HE THIRD DEGREE? Oh, that doesn't mean much! 

THE THIRD DtGKtt? Oh, that aoesnt mean mucnr Occasionally we hear 
this statement made by a Phi Sig about to graduate . . . about to be given 
the Third Degree ceremony, for which he is eligible by virtue of his graduation 
from college. 

Unfortunately this brother has regarded his membership in Phi Sigma 
Kappa as an experience in Brotherhood lasting only for the four years he is in 
college. How little does he realize that the future holds innumerable opportuni- 
ties for continuing service to his chapter and to his fraternity! Nor does he stop 
to consider the real value of the life-long friendships which he formed as an 
undergraduate— friendships which time and distance cannot efface. Such con- 
tinuing associations often can and do prove beneficial in one's chosen vocation. 

The Third Degree exhorts the graduating brother to continue his active 
interest in the fraternity. How can this be done? Visit the chapter frequently and 
assure it of your moral support . . . submit names of potential members, coming 
to the college from your area . . . support the chapter financially, no matter how 
small the contribution. 

There are other ways of supporting your fraternity as you get out in the 
business world. I urge you to respond (positively, we hope) to the Grand 
Chapter's Alumni Giving campaign. The success of this campaign will insure 
improved service and more meaningful programs for all Phi Sig Chapters and 
Alumni alike . . . better communication and a more united, more progressive 

The Phi Sigma Kappa Foundation offers Third Degree brothers another 
opportunity to be of real service to the fraternity. Tax-exempt gifts from Alumni 
support its scholastic awards program, designed to stimulate superior scholar- 
ship among our undergraduate brothers. And finally each Alum can, if he 
chooses, become a Volunteer, eligible to become an Adviser, a District Governor 
or possibly a higher elective officer, ... a most rewarding experience. 

So, graduating brother, the Third Degree DOES mean something worth- 
while after all— both to YOU and to Phi Sigma Kappa. Good luck to you as you 
leave the chapter house but not the fraternity.

title— The SIGNET— wom derived.

We are very proud to say that we have active par- 
ticipation by our alumni, whose avid interest has 
pulled us through otherwise difficult times. We have 
an alumni newsletter which has a very large mailing 
list and informs our alums of chapter and alumni 
information and events. It might be interesting to note 
that during World War II all active brothers of Xi 
Deuteron enlisted in the military service, leaving one 
brother to compose and dispatch a Phi Sig newsletter. 
This newsletter followed the men around the world, 
informing them of statewide news and news of other 
brothers. Many brothers from other chapters wrote in 
requesting to be placed on our mailing list. 

The Xi Deuteron brothers maintain a striking posi- 
tion both here at the University and nationally. Tradi- 
tion has carried *sk at the University of Tennessee 
through the executive offices of nearly every organiza- 
tion on campus, including the SGA, the IFC, major 
committees, and other equally prestigious groups. In 
the national fraternity, representing our chapter as 
Vice-President, were Brothers Thomas N. Johnston 
(1940-41), L. B. Bolt, Jr. (1958-60), and Harold 
Pierce (1960-61). Brother Harold Pierce, Xi D '59, 
held the distinction during his office as Grand National 
President as the youngest in the history of Phi Sigma 
Kappa. Others who have worked their way to national 
office in the fraternity are Brothers Gary L. Bean, 
Xi D '72, and Thomas A. (Pat) Guffee, Xi D '66. 
Further honors are the Outstanding Achievement 
Award in 1962-63 and again in 1967-68; Best Chap- 
ter Award in Region III in 1960-61; and tieing with 
two other chapters in 1958-59, the Best Chapter of 
Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Over the past five years, our chapter has held one 
of the top three places in intramural activities out of 
some 26 Greek organizations here on campus. We 
hold record wins in All-Sing competitions, winning 
five first-place titles out of the past seven years. We at 
Xi Deut enjoy competitive activities and participate 

in all functions we can enter. A few of our community 
projects include an annual Christmas party for under- 
privileged children at the University Hospital and 
assistance in the Milk Fund drive for crippled children. 
We also provide an annual gift to the John F. Holly 
Memorial Fund at the University (John Holly, Xi D 

In 1966, we moved into our new $400,000 house 
on fraternity row. The dormitory portion on the second 
floor accommodates 40 brothers in 20 suites with 
private baths. The house has a Carnation Room bar, 
an ample living room, modern kitchen and dining 
facilities, and a lounge and chapter room which com- 
bine to form a vast party area one step from our large 
party porch. 

Our scholastic record speaks for itself — we have 
been among the top six in power structure of all school 
organizations for at least the past five years. Promot- 
ing the effort to continue this outstanding performance, 
we have files of past exams, notes, and course/teacher 
information for use by the brothers, pledges, and 
Little Sisters. Also the interests of our chapter are 
diversified so widely, we have brothers in every course

Xi Deuteron has come a long way since 1925, 
through prosperous times as well as those we would 
rather forget. However, during our 47 years, we have

nity and its image, but also ourselves.

Whatever Happened To Star Trek? 

By Dr. James E. Sefton, Xi P (Fac.) 

Former Chapter Adviser and Associate Professor of History 

at San Fernando Valley State College 

Remember "Star Trek" several years ago? Accord- 
ing to the opening line, the mission was "to boldly 
go where no man has gone before." And what was 
the name of the starship? The "Enterprise." It's not 
quite so dramatic as the program was, but there is an 
academic version of the same spirit that characterized 
the Star Trek crew. Unfortunately, though, academic 
enterprise seems like an alien spore in today's colleges. 
Students approach courses with the attitude, often im- 
plied but sometimes boldly asked: "What is the mini- 
mum you will make me do before you let me out?" 
The question might better be, "What is the maximum 
area of knowledge and experience through which I 
can roam while I am here?" For all the rhetoric about 
the challenges of life and all the jargon about educa- 
tional innovation, many students really do not want 
to be challenged. It is easier to be told the answers 
than to search for the meaningful questions. I am 
expected to explain in an hour what caused the Civil 
War, rather than assign a paperback of essays by 
different historians who disagree about the causes, 
leaving the student to figure out an answer for him- 
self on the basis of available evidence. The unimagin- 
ative student will still, after doing the reading, want 
THE answer — as if any question had to have only 
one — whereas the enterprising individual will not be 
satisfied until he has experimented with several equally 
plausible ones and found the one he thinks is soundest. 

Students ask why a particular course is required. 
"To see what you will do with it" would be regarded 
as an irrelevant non-answer, yet it is perfectly valid. It 
is traditional (and not altogether frivolous) that a 
college-educated man should have the basic knowledge 
of American Literature that an elementary course will 
impart. But if during that semester he invents for him- 
self some new insights or patterns of thought, he has 
gotten a great deal more out of the course. 

The shortchanging of academic enterprise may be 
caused in part by deteriorating attitudes toward college 
education generally. A degree is no longer something 
which brings the holder special honors; it is rather like 
a utensil which everyone is expected to have. Simi- 
larly, students who see the degree as a necessity 
regard its possession as a right, to be accorded after 

Spring, 1972 

fulfillment of certain minimum criteria. And when 
such students are increasingly the products of middle- 
class affluence, it is not surprising that the most- 
reward-for-least-work syndrome gets transferred to 
academic affairs. Social values have had another sort 
of negative influence: the economic pressure to mass- 
produce the greatest number of A.B.'s in the shortest 
amount of time. There are signs of a move toward 
three-year degree programs, which will take a further 
toll of academic enterprise. 

Some students will protest that, with five courses, a 
job, family obligations, and extracurricular activities, 
they have too little time to do anything but the mini- 
mum required. The point is valid, if it is not carried 
too far, for academic enterprise is not a function only 
of time, but equally importantly of attitude. Nor is the 
enterprising student necessarily the cartoonist's render- 
ing of the myopic, peaked bookworm. He might just 
as easily be the all-conference quarterback, the paint- 
splotched artist, or the radical organizer. He is the 
student who, instead of asking the professor for a 
reading list, compiles his own and then seeks consulta- 
tion after skimming what he has found. He is the 
student who makes something interesting out of even 
the most straightforward examination questions. He is 
like one of my present students who first visited cam- 
pus two years ago during his last high school semester 
to get counselling for his first freshman program; my 
next conversation with him was when he came to talk 
about the things he should take into account when 
choosing his major. Here was a freshman who took 
far more interest in his own academic career than all 
too many seniors do. 

Students will also protest that some enterprising 
spirit gets stifled by boring instructors who only want 
regurgitation of dated material. That is true. But some 
professors are boring, because they are seldom in- 
spired by their students and have lost whatever enthu- 
siasm they may once have had. After all, at 11 P.M., 
a stack of forty-seven bluebooks all containing a more- 
or-less accurate but pallid version of one's lecture 
notes is less appealing than a low-budget flick on the 
late show. Most any professor would feel flattered if

A Vieiv From the Field 

The Non-Fraternities: 

Phi-Sig's Ever-Groaning Throng 

Wesley F. Mann, Jr 

By Wes Mann, Iota P.. '71. Chapter Consultant 


After ten months of travel as one of Phi Sigma 
Kappa's two chapter consultants (AKA "field 
representatives," "traveling secretaries," "men from 
National," and even "district superintendents" and — 
my favorite heard only last week — "free agents"), I 
have made some observations about fraternities in 
general and Phi Sig in particular. 

On most of the campuses I have visited, the last 
year has been a wait-and-see period. Fraternity men 
have watched anxiously as their student bodies reacted 
to the restoration of calm and the return to academics. 
Early indications of increases in the number of men 
rushing and pledging prompted some observers to con- 
clude that students were listening once again and that 
anti-fraternity sentiment bottomed out last spring. The 
attitude was one of cautious optimism. Most people 
agreed that the opportunity was presenting itself and 
that the next move was up to the Greeks. 

For their part, the fraternities have since been 
attacking on two fronts. For those chapters that have 
been slow in recognizing the fact that student attitudes 
have changed, there was the need to revise programs 
accordingly. For the chapters and Greek systems that 
had already done so, the problem has been the re-edu- 
cation of the independent with a public relations ap- 
proach effective enough to dispel the stereotypes and 
misconceptions under which fraternities have been 

Though the latter group is admittedly farther along 
than the former, both are looking towards the future 
with justifiable optimism. For these chapters have 
perforce reaffirmed their belief in and commitment to 
the concept of fraternity and recognize its undiminished 
viability and relevance to modern education. They 
understand that the phrase "fraternities are dying" is 
not only hackneyed, but also untrue. These chapters 
have accepted the premises from which fraternity 
proceeds and are getting on to more important matters 
Hike gauging their progress and developing new ideas 
that will lead to the sophistication of their programs 
and the enhancement of the experience for all who 
take part. 

There is another group of chapters that comprise a 
third category. These chapters I like to refer to as 
"non-fraternities." These are invariably Phi Sig's weak 
chapters, and there are many. Too many. But it would 
be misleading to call them "fraternities", for they are 
only pretenders who have done little more than distort 

the image. They resemble, more, social clubs or mutual 
admiration societies. Not unlike fraternity brothers, 
the members of the "non-fraternity" evince common 
traits; only their hallmarks tend more toward indiffer- 
ence, irresponsibility, and lack of commitment. Mere 
tolerance replaces mutual respect and solicitude as 
keys to their personal relationships. Pride and enthu- 
siasm are undermined by inattention to goals and 
ignorance of purpose. If problems arise, seldom is the 
neglect of responsibilities and obligations cited as a 
reason. For scapegoats are many: changing times, 
anti-Greek campuses, evil administrations, inept IFC's, 
impecunious alumni, and that bugaboo of bugaboos, 
"National." And when the time comes to solve the 
problem, reach for the rip-cord and mutter something 
about "doing your own thing", a handy rationalization 
if one is going to bail out or drag his feet. In short, 
everything a fraternity stands for is vitiated by the 
"non-fraternity," the cancer within our system. 

I have had the pleasure of visiting many excellent 
chapters of Phi Sigma Kappa that provide eloquent 
testimony to the fact that fraternity is not dying. How- 
ever, "non-fraternities" are. They can save themselves, 
as many have, by simply investigating the possibilities 
of becoming a true fraternity again, of returning to the 
basics. The very exercise will require the group to 
rethink its reasons for being, the responsibilities of 
membership, its relationship to college and commu- 
nity, its obligation to alumni, its affiliation with the 
Grand Chapter, and so on and so forth until a new 
consciousness (!) of its own emerges in the form of 
meaningful programs and purposeful operations. For 
the "non-fraternities," encrusted with habits and re- 
tarded by hang-ups, the process can be a revelation. 

Phi Sigma Kappa's Centennial year, I suspect, will 
not only be one of celebration for our fraternities, but 
also one of decision for our "non-fraternities." Let's 
hope they will reaffirm those Principles we all will be 
hailing in Amherst in August, 1973. Plan right now 
to be there for that memorable occasion. 

Your Editor is eager to secure relevant articles such as 
this excellent one from undergraduates as well as alumni 
icho are knoivledgeable with the respect to present trends 
in the fraternity system. We are anxious to utilize the 
columns of the SIGNET to reflect current attitudes on 
fraternity in the rapidly changing field of higher edu-

Strong Leadership 

A Prerequisite for 

A Good Chapter 

During the many years of our fraternity experience 
it has become increasingly evident that the one 
essential factor in building a good chapter is compe- 
tent leadership. With it any chapter can, in most in- 
stances, overcome all obstacles and meet the myriad 
of challenges which confront today's fraternity chapter. 
Where it is lacking, the chances for survival are greatly 

Now what do we mean by strong leadership? It is 
that quality in an individual which motivates men to 
have confidence in his opinions and in his capacity 
to get things done. It inspires respect rather than 
antagonism. It fosters unity of purpose rather than 
apathy. While there are those who insist leaders are 
born and not made, they can be developed with the 
proper effort on the part of the other brothers. 

All the officers constitute the leadership echelon of 
the chapter, but, of course, it is the president who plays 
the major role, to whom the other officers instinctively 
look for guidance . . . and it is guidance, about which 
we are speaking in this context. Real leaders guide . . . 
they rarely have to drive. 

When a chapter elects its officers, the members 
should search for the man who possesses leadership 
potential . . . certainly not the man who is just a good 
Joe ... or the man who can down the greatest number 
of steins of beer ... or the man who is a varsity 
athlete, deserving of some recognition. Once elected 
every brother should get behind him 100%. Give him 
the greatest measure of support. Accept any assign- 
ment he gives him and fulfill it to the best of his 

Trouble-spot chapters too frequently are prone 
to blame their weaknesses on all kinds of reasons other 
than their own shortcomings. Stock excuses for poor 
rushing results are an anti-fraternity administration, a 
decline in interest among the new class of students, 
poor housing which makes the chapter non-competi- 
tive, ad infinitum. It is seldom that a chapter gets right 
down to the nitty-gritty of the problem and faces the 
fact that much of its trouble stems from inept, unimagi- 
native leadership, which just doesn't give a damn. 
When asked why Phi Sig didn't do as well in Rush as 
other fraternities on campus, how often we get the 
flimsy, ridiculous explanation — "Oh, they'll take in 
anybody!" Of course, it's not poor leadership. Oh, no? 

This is equally as true of other areas of weakness as 
it is of rushing . . . such as financial mismanagement, 
low scholarship, drug addiction among chapter mem- 
bers, unrestricted hazing practices, unacceptable con- 
duct and behavior which invites a reputation of "ani- 
malism". For chapters suffering from such weaknesses 

strong, dynamic leadership can make the difference 
between slow death and speedy recovery. 

Too many chapters have had to contend with a 
malady, commonly known as "senioritus" . . . where 
juniors and seniors walk out of the House and go into 
an apartment. Their excuse is that they want to be free 
"to do their thing" without the restriction of house 
rules and regulations, the better to enjoy (?) their 

remaining days at college. (What a joke!) To h 

with what it does to the chapter budget . . . with the 
financial burden it places upon the other brothers. 
They have done their bit for the fraternity, so they say. 
And too often these are the very men who could supply 
the much-needed leadership to pull the chapter up by 
its bootstraps. Brotherhood seems to take a holiday 
in such instances. A well-run chapter should not toler- 
ate this wanton neglect of responsibilities on the part 
of men to whom it should be able to look for leader- 

A chapter CAN develop leaders ... but what good 
are they if they WON'T lead. 

The National President of Phi Delta Theta, Judge 
Wade S. Weatherford, recently made this significant 
statement in an article, published in The Scroll 
(national magazine) : 

"I would list weak leadership as the prime prob- 
lem in our weak chapters." 

Can there be the slightest doubt about the truth of 
this statement?

Dear Brother Dickinson, 

As a graduating senior, and more recently past president 
of Alpha, let me convey the most grateful feeling my 
brothers and I hold for you. The many experiences, heart- 
aches, and friendships which have matured and inspired us 
all over the past jew years are due in large part to your 
generosity of a few years back. On the enclosure, you will 
note that you have been awarded the highest honor we can 
accord — a plaque which reads: 

"In recognition of his generous contribution to his fra- 
ternity, the brothers of Alpha Chapter are pleased to

now hangs proudly over our mantle trophies. We have 
labored diligently to make our chapter room a place of 
beauty and a credit to all. Only recently we added a 
comfortable wall-to-wall carpet. Presently, we are launch- 
ing an alumni fund drive to replace its battered furniture. 
We only hope that we will exemplify the true spirit and 
beauty of Phi Sigma Kappa by our Centennial anni- 

Once again, let me express our heartfelt thanks to you 
and extend Alpha's best wishes for the future.

One of Ten Most 
Beautiful at Texas 

Theta Triton's entry, Miss Carole Daniel, was 
recently selected by actor Ryan O'Neal, star of 
"Love Story", as one of the Ten Most Beautiful at the 
University of Texas, Austin Campus. 

The annual event at the University is sponsored by 
Theta Sigma Phi, professional organization for women 
in journalism and communication. The many entrants 
are sponsored by various organizations on campus. 
Judging consists of three rounds. 

The first two rounds of judging were conducted by 
a panel of three judges. Entrants appeared before the 
panels in both campus attire and after-six wear. Each 
judge, based on a short interview, scored the entrants 
on poise, posture, hairdo, facial beauty, over-all im- 
pression, and figure. The third round of judging was 
conducted by taking photographs of the final 25 and 
sending them to the celebrity for selection of the Ten 
Most Beautiful. 

Miss Daniel, a senior education major from Dallas, 
attended Kent State for two years before coming to 
the University of Texas, where she is a member of 
Chi Omega Sorority. 

Editor's Note — And what do you know . . . this 
lovely lady is engaged to none other than Brother John 
Drolla, Adviser of Theta Triton Chapter. Can you 
imagine that? 

Phi Sigma Kappa — A Living Eulogy 

Dear Brother Phi Sigs. 

Several weeks ago during Theta Pentaton's Founders' 
Day celebration, I met Bert Brown for the first time. The 
occasion had all the festive enjoyment that all our Found- 
ers' Days have had, but with the added pleasure of the 
presence of the Editor of "The Signet". Bert, as our cele- 
brated speaker, talked about fraternity and its purpose. I 
was quite impressed by the depth of thought involved in 
his speech. It is a reassurance of my confidence in our 
National with people like Brother Brown. 

But to the original purpose of my letter, upon receiving 
my SIGNET several weeks ago, the first thing I did was 
turn to the old Theta Pentaton section to read the news. 
But I didn't have to read it — / already knew the news. The 
article concerned deceased brother Bill Lewis. After read- 
ing the article my mind wandered as I leafed through the 
magazine. I came upon The Chapter Eternal and read the 
statistics of our deceased brothers. I remembered the good 
times with girls, beer, pledging, and brotherhood. I can 
place times and events that seem so long past. As I read 
the remaining remembrances, I knew that somebody some- 
where had those same feelings about these other men. 
Learning and living as a Phi Sig has been an asset to my 
life. I know that our Cardinal ideas will stimulate many 
more men, if the living and dead can originally stimulate 
the good qualities of future brothers.

Academic Enterprise 

(continued from page 5 ) 

a student put some interesting and thoughtful inter- 
pretation on what he had said. 

The cure for the malady is largely a matter of show- 
ing an interest in one's own academic career, and of 
letting the mind ramble out into unfamiliar territory. 
As one example, every student should try to set aside 
an hour each day for "stack walking." This involves 
starting in one corner of the library stacks and scan- 
ning titles shelf by shelf until the entire building has 
been covered, stopping along the way to browse 
through books that have interesting titles. If it takes 
much less than a year, even at a small college, the 
person has very little intellectual curiosity. And if we 
are turning out A.B.'s with no intellectual curiosity — 
even if they are very skilled chemists, accountants, or 
whatever — we are in for a seriously gloomy future. 
There are always interesting new things to explore. 
Just as oddball planets were always turning up on 
Star Trek.

IN A world condemned by the young as materialistic, 
impersonal, hypocritical and war-oriented, an un- 
expected answer to part of these problems is the Greek 
fraternity system. Does your brain cry "No!"? Are 
your eyebrows raised? Let me explain. 

Fraternities and sororities were originally founded by 
idealistic young people trying to better the society in 
which they found themselves. Charters, rituals and 
constitutions were written with their ideals in mind; 
ideals such as love, charity, equality, service. These 
charters, rituals and constitutions still exist; their ideals 
are even more applicable to the world today. 

The major premise for the death of the fraternal 
system as advocated by its opponents is that the system 
is outdated, irrelevant and frivolous. Perhaps over the 
years members either forgot or ignored the original 
ideals of founders. But that is not reason enough to 
execute the whole system. On the other hand, the 
system exists with its organizational structure intact 
and waiting to be put into productive operation. 
National offices and staffs are available to execute the 
desires of the members. It is up to the members them- 
selves to determine the course the organization with 
its tremendous personal and financial resources will 
take. Are you beginning to fathom the potential just 
crying to be used? 

Let's examine our materialistic, impersonal world 
first. What other system exists in all the world where 
young men and women band together in a quasi- 
communal, quasi-tribal fashion promising friendship 
and kinship for life. Used properly this declaration of 
fealty only begins during the four years of college. 
During those initial years a few very close friends are 
made who will be dear and important to you for life, 
no matter where you may travel. The following years 
may find you hundreds of miles from home, family 
and your collegiate chapter. No matter where you may 
go, alumni (ae) chapters are available to welcome you 
and call you friend. Neither financial status, occupa- 
tion, nor possessions matter at all. You belong. 

Ah ha, you say! A flaw in his apologia. The selec- 
tion process of the fraternal system is notorious for 
being discriminatory. Are you sure? Who is turning 
down whom these days? Are the sins of the parents 
to be visited on the children? Change is most possible. 
In fact, it is the present battle cry of America. A 
sorority or fraternity house is the perfect place for the 
youth of America to practice the equality and brother- 
hood they preach. The system exists to be used. All 
that is necessary is the courage to use it. What an 

This same organizational structure can be harnessed 
to challenge the hypocrisy of our war-oriented society. 
There are over 80 national "social" fraternities and

News From YOUR National 

by Richard C. Snowdon, Pi '61 
Executive Director 

A Brand New Service 

Pledge Kits 

Another new service from your fraternity (Na- 
tional) . . . beginning in the Fall, pledges and 
initiates will receive personalized information kits. The 
pledge kit will consist, among other items, of the 
pledge manual, Hills and A Star, and pledge pin. The 
cost of the entire kit will be included in the current 
pledge fee ($15.00). Chapters will no longer have to 
pay for pledge manuals and pins. Each chapter must 
submit the proper forms — pledge document and the 
T-5 (pledge remittance form) — PRIOR to obtaining 
pledge kits. We anticipate fast processing, in view of 
the fact that arrangements have been with United 
Parcel Service (UPS) to handle expeditious delivery 

of packages. The cost of mailing will be borne by the 
chapter. However, it is felt that each chapter will save 
considerably by not having to purchase manuals and 
pins. Chapters have asked about having pledge pins 
available to give to prospects immediately as they are 
formally pledged. We suggest that pins owned by 
actives (perhaps the respective Big Brothers, if 
known) be used until the pledge pins in the kits are 
received from Headquarters. 

This will require planning and proper administrative 
procedures on the chapter level. We have every confi- 
dence that this program will be of practical value to all 



Initiate Kits 

Prior to initiation, each chapter must submit 
personnel cards, initiation fee and badge order on 
Form T-6. Prepayment of initiation fees is provided 
for in our national By-laws (Article 9, Section II). It 
is anticipated that each initiate kit will be forwarded to 
the chapter, so that the appropriate contents can be 
utilized in the initiation ceremony. Badges, member- 
ship cards and certificates (plus additional items) will 
be included in the initiate kit. Again, proper advanced 

planning on the chapter level is most essential . . . 
allow fifteen (15) calendar days (from the date of 
receipt) for complete processing of initiate kits. All 
materials included in the kit will be provided without 
additional cost, except the badge selected by and paid 
for in advance by the initiate. 

This modernized approach will enable Headquarters 
personnel to devote more planning and time to addi- 
tional chapter programs and services. 

Official Little Sister's Pin Now Available 

TP he increasing number of Little Sisters of the 
■*■ Triple T's "chapters", organized during the last 
few years, has created a demand for an official Little 
Sister's pin. A most attractive pin, designed by Bert 
Brown, has been produced and is now available on 
order from Headquarters at the modest price of $1.50 

It is in the form of a regular enameled pledge pin, 
in a circle of silver metal with the words "Little Sisters" 

inscribed in the upper half of the circumference and 
the three Greek letters for Phi Sigma Kappa in the 
lower half. (See picture herewith.) 

Place your order for these pins now, including your 
check for the number desired at $1.50 each and you 
will surely delight your Little Sisters by this recogni- 
tion of what they mean to your chapter. Orders will be 
filled promptly . . . since they are an inventory item, 
carried in stock for immediate delivery. 


Q. We have the computer list for our Alumni; but 
there are some marked "unknown". What does this 
mean and how do we correct it? 

A. Check the computer list with your Alumni file 
and the college or university Alumni records. 
If a current address is availahle from these 
sources, forward this to Headquarters imme- 
diately so we can enter this in the correct man- 
ner for future printouts. 

Q. Do you know any alumnus who should be receiv- 
ing The SIGNET and is not? 

A. If so, please forward his name, chapter affili- 
ation and address so we can investigate to see 
if he should be on The SIGNET mailing list. 

Q. I lost my fraternity pin and how do I obtain a 

A. Just send a note to Headquarters and we can 

provide all the necessary information. 

Q. Where are we having our 1973 convention? 

A. Amherst, Massachusetts, at Massachusetts 
Agricultural College (now U. of Mass.), where 
the fraternity was founded. It's going to be 
our centennial convention. Hope to see many 
Phi Sigs in attendance. 


The Grand Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa is 
pleased to announce the formation and approval 
of the following colonies. Nicholls State University, 
Thibodaux. Louisiana; University of Southwestern 
Louisiana, Lafayette, Louisiana, and the University 
of South Alabama, Mobile, Alabama. Phi Sigma 
Kappa presently has four other colonies; Albright 
College, LaSalle College, University of Dayton, and 
Fairleigh Dickinson University — Teaneck. We are 
interested in establishing additional colonies and ask 
each brother to submit any information that he be- 
lieves would assist the Grand Chapter in this en- 

Some losses ... the Bloomsburg Colony decided 
to revert to its local status and therefore, is no longer 
affiliated with Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Nu Deuteron (Stanford University) has relin- 
quished its chapter status with Phi Sigma Kappa. The 
charter is suspended and will doubtless be revoked by 
vote of the Council this coming summer. 

The Grand Chapter will continue to carefully ex- 
amine each colony and chapter in an effort to deter- 
mine the relationship of each.

. . "Ask What You Can Do for Your Fraternity" 

Paraphrasing the late President Kennedy's famous challenge to the nation. 

Yes, Brother Alumnus, the late President Ken- 
nedy had an idea here which is as applicable to 
the members of Phi Sigma Kappa as it was to the 
American people. The Phi Sigma Kappa Foundation 
provides one very real service you can render to your 
fraternity. Founded back in 1947 to provide incentive 
awards for excellence in academic achievement, the 
Foundation implements one of the fraternity's three 
Cardinal principles — the Stimulation of Scholarship. 

One of the most frequently heard criticisms of fra- 
ternities has always been that they are anti-intellectual. 
This criticism in fact is unfounded. Phi Sigma Kappa 
recognizes its obligation to its members to provide the 
motivation to superior academic work. The program 
of the Foundation is not only designed to correct this 
image in the minds of the public, but to provide a 
service to its undergraduate members which will make 
their collegiate experience more meaningful and more 
rewarding ... for after all the primary reason for going 
to college IS to acquire an education. 

The following are the several aspects of the Founda- 
tion Scholarship Program offered annually. 

( 1 ) Seven Undergraduate Scholarships — one for 
$1,000 and six runner-up awards of $500 each. 

(2) Library Awards — $150 to the chapter showing 
the greatest improvement over the previous 
year. Five runner-up awards of $50 each; in 
addition $75 to the chapter placing first on its 
campus ... all cash awards to be spent for 
additions to the Chapter House Library. 

(3) Regional Best Chapter Awards — an appropri- 
ately engraved plaque to the chapter placing 
highest scholastically in its region. 

(4) Watts Scholarship Society Membership — to 
the brother nominated by the chapter who has 
the highest grade point rating (providing it is at 
least the equivalent of a "B"); a laminated 
framed certificate and a good book to each 

(5) The Foundation Scholar Award — to the mem- 
ber of the initiated class of each chapter an- 
nually with the highest grade point average 
rating providing it is at least a "B" . . . awarded 
a Phi Sig paperweight. 

(6) Matching Cash Awards to chapters spending 
money for the development of a chapter library 
up to a total of $500 each year (for all chap- 
ters) on a first-come-first-served basis. 

(7) Matching Scholarship Awards to chapters, 
whose actives and/or Alumni provide annual 
Scholarships (or incentives) for the undergrad- 
uate brothers up to a total of $500 each year 
(for all chapters) on a first-come-first-served 

As we accumulate additional funds through the 
generosity of our Alumni, this program will be steadily 
expanded to make it more beneficial to more of our 
undergraduate brothers.

University of Massachusetts 

A lpha Chapter is back! After taking 
■^ much grief at the Region I Con- 
clave, we now have 21 pledges, and the 
brotherhood is becoming stronger and 
much more unified than it has been in 
the last four years. But we are not rest- 
ing on our laurels, as rushing will con- 
tinue through this semester and on into 
the summer. 

The highlight of this semester is the 
March of Dimes' run between Boston 
and Amherst. Brothers from Phi Sig and 
other fraternities here at UMass will 
carry a torch the 120 miles, in hopes of 
raising money for this worthwhile cause. 

Founders' Day was celebrated by a 
birthday party put on by our pledges. 
The party was a rousing success, and 
the Phi Sig spirit was once again instilled 
within the brotherhood. Upcoming social 
events include Parents' Day; Greek Week, 
with a toga party; Mass Grass; a 
brotherhood-date camping trip; and 
Spring Day. 

Intramurals, like our rushees, are in 
high gear! After placing first on campus 
in volleyball, and second in basketball. 
Alpha is after divisional titles in soccer 
and softball. Phi Sig is especially proud 
of Brother Bower, who placed second in 
the campus bowling roll-offs with a fine 
605 series. Special congratulations go to 
our two new Varsity captains — Brother 
Doherty, soccer, and Brother Jones, crew. 

A rarity has occurred here at Alpha 
concerning Brother Bower's graduation. 
What is rare is not the fact that he is 
graduating, but. come May 27th, he will 
join his grandfather. Brother Fred Brun- 
ner (Alpha), who graduated from UMass 
nearly 50 years ago. We are interested in 
learning from other chapters who have 
had similar grandfather-grandson gradu- 

We are now striving for increased 
alumni correspondence and support, for 
brothers and alumni alike will play vital 
roles in making Phi Sig's Centennial, 
which will be held here at Alpha, a suc- 
cess and a memorable experience for all 
members of Phi Sigma Kappa. 

A special thanks is extended to Brother 
Dickinson, Alpha '06, for his generous 
help in putting Alpha back on its feet. 
Finally, we wish to extend our belated 
thanks to Brothers Wes Mann and Rick 
Snowdon for the help that they have 
given us throughout the year.

WfniLE most Phi Sigs look towards 
" our 1973 Centennial as being one of 
the fraternity's biggest days, brothers at 
Eta Chapter, in College Park, Md., will 
long remember our 99th Anniversary. 
Just six months ago Eta was ready to 
fold, with only four active brothers left 
to carry on our tradition. Twenty-one 
brothers, and five pledges later, the uni- 
versity's Phi Sigs have risen as one of 
the strongest, closest knit fraternities on 

In six months. Phi Sigs have finished 
first in basketball, are currently running 
a close softball race, and are instrumental 
in IFC functions on campus. Although 
many called our six-hour Founders' Day 
Celebration the best the Greeks have had 
all year, and our ninety-minute fireworks 
display was enjoyed by the entire city of 
College Park, we at the Eta Chapter see 
it as only a beginning . . . we're building 
today for a better tomorrow.

I^appa's rush saw one of its most suc- 
cessful terms in recent times. After twc 
terms of revamping, we settled on a pro- 
gram consisting of week-day evening 
dinners and smokers and it paid off with 
ten new pledges. The pledge program 
itself is currently under revision. It seems 
that the current program, while easy to 
sell to the rushees, was not producing 
the proper attitude in the pledges. We 
are now trying to combine the good facets 
of the old tough program and the current 
easy one. 

Socially we were in top form and most 
of us managed to live through the Hairy 

Buffalo, Gravediggers Ball, and Greek 
Week. Highlight of our social calendar 
was the Founders' Day celebration. We 
would like to thank Brother Rick Snow- 
don for delivering an excellent keynote 
speech after the dinner and sharing the 
wealth during the party. 

Kappa also hosted a regional conclave 
where we attempted to find solutions to 
many problems facing fraternities today, 
including drugs, brothers not paying 
house bills, reorientation of older broth- 
ers to new programs, etc. That night the 
members of the conclave (except for the 
conspicuous absence of our brothers from 
Indiana of Pa.) celebrated their finding 
of the final solution to everything at a 
party that night.

Greetings! Elections for the 1972 aca- 
demic year have recently been con- 
cluded. Mu Chapter is proud to announce 
our new President, Ken Mulvaney; Vice- 
President, Wally Hank; and Treasurer, 
Steve Strunk. Completing the incoming 
administration are John Riva, social 
chairman, and Pete Kelly and Ed Mel- 
vin, house managers. Our retiring presi- 
dent leaves behind him a tremendously 
broad scope of accomplishments, the 
foremost being the garnering of the 
Crawford-Madeira Award, sponsored by 
the University of Penn., which recog- 
nizes Mu Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa 
as the most active and spirited House on 

Six of our brothers serve as uncon- 
tested examples of this spirit and vivac- 
ity. Whitey Varga, Keith Hansen, Billy 
Walters, Steve Batory, John Jablonski and 
Jack Sonnenberg are part of Penn's bas- 
ketball team, which has fashioned an

impressive 18-2 log and is currently the 
4th ranked team nationally. 

Tom Blair has been getting high fre- 
quently this winter, with the assistance 
of a fiberglass pole, that is. He has estab- 
lished himself as the man to beat this 
season by vaulting 17' 3%", best in the 
world this year. Munich, Germany, seems 
a sure stopping-off point for Tom in his 
travels this summer. 

We are presently involved in our spring 
rush with hopes of pledging at least six 
more men to add to our complement of 
Fall '71 rushees, John Beecroft, Terry 
Lyman, Vince Ray and John Wales. 

Finally, the Interfraternity Council 
Ball, held in February, was one activity 
in which almost all of the brothers gladly 
partook, as this picture shows. The only 
question remaining is. who got the extra 
girl? ! !

Lehigh University 

^ u Chapter is off to a fine start for a 
great Spring Semester. Heading the 
list of exciting events for the remainder 
of the year was our pledge weekend, 
when we inducted 16 pledges. The 
psyche and potential of our new pledges 
were exemplified by the gallant attempt 
of the freshmen to beat the upperclass- 
men in our traditional crew race (chug- 
ging race). 

The new social committee for this 
semester has managed to keep us enter- 
tained every weekend with unusual activ- 
ities from road rallies to hitchhiking con- 
tests. Of course, one of the highlights of 
our social calendar was the hosting of 
the Region II Basketball Tournament. 
Eleven visiting chapters participated with 
Mu Chapter being victors once again. 
Twenty-six kegs of beer and a crowded 
band party, featuring the band Christian, 
made the weekend a big success. 

Starring in University News, Brother 
Blake Johnstone captured his third con- 

secutive intramural heavyweight cham- 
pionship, defeating, no less, one of our 
own pledges. Due to his efforts and other 
brothers' the house placed fourth in the 
overall standings. This was in fine keep- 
ing with our intramural football cham- 
pionship last fall. Once again Brothers 
Steve Senkowski and Richard Fuchs were 
reinstated to the All University Forum.

A thank you is extended to all brothers 
■^ at Lehigh for hosting the Region II 
basketball tournament. Although we 
didn't fare as well as we had hoped, we 
certainly enjoyed ourselves afterwards. 
We fared better here on our home courts 
by finishing second in the tough inter- 
fraternity league. 

With spring semester approaching we 
are looking forward to our annual Car 
Wash Weekend. This year the Car Wash 
is for the Lancaster Hemophiliac Foun- 
dation. Every year this is one of the 

biggest weekends, with the Car Wash 
being followed by a theme party. Another 
upcoming event will be our annual ban- 
quet. Helen McComsey, our hats off to 
you for 1 1 years of perfect attendance as 
cook and friend to all. 

At the banquet we will announce the 
winner of the Ralph Jan Krensky Cup as 
outstanding sophomore. The spring should 
be a busy one here with these weekends 
scheduled, plus a band on every "off" 
weekend during April. 

Our former pledges, not to be outdone 
in the awards department, this year gave 
Rick Mills the AHOY award. Rick pro- 
ceeded to thank each and every one of 
them personally during Construction 
Week. During that week our pledges were 
kept busy with remodeling the basement, 
painting and general house improvements. 
Their enthusiastic approach to their work 
was rewarded with intermittent "work 
breaks" by the brotherhood to show an 
appreciation for such enthusiasm. 

This year Phi Sig is well represented in 
the F & M baseball teams with Bill Bock- 
horst, Mike Kennerley, Jay Teagle and 
Ken Josephy rounding out the infield.

where the simple pleasures of life were 
aptly summed up by Tony "Ain't the 
beer cold!" Webster. Special thanks are 
due to Big Martha and Clancy's for the 
beef they provided. 

In between Marx Brother movies here 
in Charlottesville, there was the usual 
succession of big weekends. They were all 
merely preparation for Phi Sig Weekend, 
however, when we celebrated Founders' 
Day. Alumni Chairman Ken "Berwick 
Buffalo" Hoffman did a great job of 
inviting all our alumni back for a three- 

i day blast. It was great to see our dis- 
tinguished (?) alumni back, and they 

' were good enough sports not to be 

t grossed out by our howling 50's party 

' on Saturday night. 

Spring weather came early this year, 
and we've already spent many a night 
out on our new patio grilling burgers and 
steaks on the barbecue. The patio was a 

1 house effort; everyone did some work on 
it, whether laying brick or mixing mortar, 
and this makes it that much more enjoy- 

Our goofy-looking but fine-spirited 
pledge class livened up the other night 
with a surprise raid on the house. The 
brotherhood was victorious, naturally, 
but not before a good many of us took 
a bucketful of water in the face. Hostil- 
ities came to a halt with the arrival of 
Charlottesville's finest in five squad cars. 
We seemed to have made too much noise 
repelling the attack. 

Our underprivileged boys' basketball 
team finished 4-1-1, tied for first place. 
Most Valuable Player honors went to 
Francis, a miniature Earl Monroe. Coach 
of the year goes to Bear Bergman for 
making it out of bed at 8 o'clock on 
Saturday mornings. In intramurals, the 
house basketball team made it to the 
finals before losing, while the bowlers 
reached the semis. 

President Chuck Fancher. recently 
elected Vice-President of the Inter- 
fraternity Council, will celebrate by in- 
viting us all on the annual roll to the 
Kentucky Derby in May, held in his 
native Louisville.

T"' he Brothers of Beta Deuteron are 
looking forward to another successful 
spring quarter with many activities 
planned in the weeks ahead. 

The house track team, which last year 
captured all-fraternity at the intramural 
track meet is hoping for a repeat of that 
performance this year with the return of 
all participants from last year's squad. 
The house anticipates several records 
being broken this year with Garry Thor- 
son running in the mile, who has run 
with his best time at near 4 minutes 
fiat. Another potential record may be set 

by the 880 track team which last year 
came close to setting a national record 
in that event. 

The house GPA for winter quarter was 
2.9, which was one of the highest on 
campus. The brothers are very proud 
considering the large number of freshmen 
this year. 

Two new brothers were initiated this 
winter quarter, bringing the total number 
of new members for the year to 16. For 
spring we now have two pledges but are 
hoping for a strong rush. 

Founders' Day was again highlighted 
this year by the attendance of Brothers 
Harry and Rube Lovering, who have been 
active in the house since it was built more 
than 40 years ago. 

Our spring plans include Polynesian 
Orgy, Spring Weekend and a few river 
bashes on the Mississippi.

r T l me Spring semester here at "Epsy 
Deuty" finds many of the brothers 
working out in the gym or dieting, trying 
to lose all that excess baggage picked up 
during the leisurely, beer-filled days of 
Intersession, although the cries for "More 
Beer" have not subsided to any noticeable 
extent. Among the highlights of Inter- 
session was a cocktail party sponsored 
by the brothers for the faculty and ad- 
ministration, which turned out to be 
quite a good time for those who stayed 
after the faculty had left. 

Our new cook. Mrs. McKay, has 
learned a lot about our likes and dislikes 
and her meals and especially her pastries 
are getting more and more delicious. She 
also does an excellent job of decorating 
the house for such occasions as Home- 
coming and Christmas. 

Our party room is undergoing redeco- 
ration this semester and should be fin- 
ished just in time for a St. Patrick's Day 

Initiation, which brought nine new 
enthusiastic brothers into the brother- 
hood, was held on March 12. The new 
brothers have a lot of spirit and are a 
welcome addition to the house. We are 
sure that they will all contribute greatly 
to the good name of Phi Sigma Kappa. 
A second semester rush has been started 
and we hope to obtain a large pledge 
class which could be initiated early next 

In the area of intramural sports, our 
bowling team has been most outstanding 
and we are eagerly looking forward to a 
winning Softball season as soon as the 
snow melts. We have potential for a real 
good team this year, if everyone gets 
together and does his part.

Eta Deuteron's Little Sisters of the Triple T's 


University of Nevada 

tjELLO from Eta Deuteron. We at 
•*■ the University of Nevada have re- 
cently started a "Little Sisters" program, 
the first time for our Chapter. Last week 
we initiated them formally into Phi 
Sigma Kappa, as far as a Little Sister 
may do so. They are 14 good-looking 
girls, plus two alumni advisers. We have 
included a picture of our Little Sisters 
and hope you will include it in the Win- 
ter issue of The SIGNET. 

The girls drew up a constitution, going 
by current National Phi Sig bylaws; and 
have designed their own pin. 

This year Eta Deuteron has been 
graced by the good fortune of rush. Thus 
far to date we have initiated 21 new 
members into the "Ever Growing 
Throng." More than anything, these men 
came to us via the standard means . . . 
a diligent rush by the chapter. At this 
time we have 10 good pledges on the 
rolls in addition. Our recent Founders' 
Day (Phi Sig's 99th and Eta Deuteron's 
55th) was a huge success with some 90 
persons attending the celebration. Broth- 
er Gary Rand was elected Alumni Corpo- 
ration President at the event. 

This marks the second consecutive year 
that Eta Deuteron has captured awards 
in two areas: the coveted Mackay Day 
Songteam competition, as well as two 
winter carnival trophies, again. As a re-

TH he Theta Deuteron Chapter has 
been closed since fall term 1971. The 
reasons for closing are many but the 
prominent ones were lack of leadership 
and lack of interest among the past mem- 
bers. All inactive members are being 
disassociated in order to gain help from 
the school administration and from the 
Inter-Fraternity Council. This will facil- 
itate in the easing of regulations concern-

Winter quarter as it turned out was 
very long and very cold. However, il 
wasn't without its excitement. Take for 
instance our intramural activities, which 
consisted of basketball and soccer. In 
basketball we fared well, winning a spot 
in the playoff berth for the school cham- 
pionship. We did not win the champion- 
ship. In soccer we didn't do too well 
(2-3), but we finished strong. 

The rest of our thrills came from the 
initiation of 3 new brothers and there 
were a couple of parties. And we finally 

ended it all with a smashingly successful 
Founders' Day Formal. 

For sometime now our chapter has 
been trying to build a new house on this 
lot we own on campus (and I do mean 
for sometime). We've gone everywhere 
(even to National) trying to get help, but 
the only help we get is from a small 
group of alumni. It seems that none has 
any faith in the fraternity system in gen- 
eral, nor do they believe it will last much 
longer. To those of you who read this, 
help us prove to everyone that we will 
last and that we are a good system. We 
want a house where our fraternity will 
live forever. We want to be able to say, 
"Hey look, world, we're good for you," 
not because we say it, but because it's

keyword of the campus fraternity attitude 
here at the University of Washington, and 
especially our chapter. Presently we are

the IFC, which is the heart responsible 
for pumping that "life's blood" we are all 
so familiar with. It is anticipated that 
with the development of the first effec-

with active participation of our chapter,

rush. We welcome and appreciate any 
suggestions to assist us in this endeavor. 

We are presently maintaining the status

power, but are making every effort to 
expand our operations. Fortunately we 
are blessed with an abundance of inter- 
ested and active alumni, without whose 
assistance our very existence would be 
impossible, or at most far less rewarding. 
We are indeed fortunate to have the life-

by these brothers, and encourage their 
participation in our chapter. 

The annual Lambda D. Founders' Day 
banquet is eliciting excellent response this 
year and we are anticipating a large turn-

and ceremonial event of the year, al- 
though we have a well-balanced calendar

! University of Kentucky 


I tended to all of Phi Sigma Kappa's 
(many chapters by the brothers of Phi 
Deuteron. It is our sincere hope that your 
semester has been as successful and re- 
warding as ours. 

Our spring activities here have been 
mainly concerned with the revamping of 
our pledge program along lines that we 
believe will not only greatly benefit our 
present and future pledges, but that will 
also involve more actives and thus inter- 
nally strengthen our chapter. This pro- 
gram, the brainchild of Brother Dave 
Cecil, is in the experimental phase now, 
but early indications show that it will be 
a real asset to us in the future. 

Another asset of the future is to be 
found in the 1972 spring pledge class of 
nine young men dedicated to being Phi 
Sigs. They are already hard at work 
toward accomplishing their stated goals 
for the semester, and with little trouble 
these should be soon accomplished. 

This semester has also seen Phi Deu- 
teron seek to improve its relations with 
the community, both Greek and other- 
wise, and with our alumni. Community 

service projects such as collecting for the 
Heart Fund has been complemented by 
better relations with other Greeks through 
the further development of our Little 
Sister program, already known as one of 
the strongest on campus. These attrac- 
tive young ladies were recently honored 
by our semi-annual Little Sister Bender, 
a beautiful candlelight dinner at which 
those coeds successfully completing Li'l 
Sis Rush were introduced to the brothers 
as new initiates into the Ever-Growing 
Little Sister Throng. 

Founders' Day this year saw a num- 
ber of alums present for a banquet com- 
plete with recollections of the good ol' 
days by some of the "elder statesmen". 
A new award was presented at the ban- 
quet for continued interest in Founders' 
Day activities, and this year's recipient 
was Brother Bert Cheek. 

From the intramural standpoint, Ken-

Decently, the Omega Deuteron Chap- 
ter has been involved in a veritable 
plethora of activities. Of paramount im- 
portance was our annual fund-raising 
"Monte Carlo Party," for parents, alumni, 
and friends. Our guests were able to play 
either craps or blackjack, with the 
brothers manning the tables. Through the 
efforts of our "master chef," Mr. Bob 
McGee, and some of the brothers' par- 
ents, we were able to offer an expansive 
buffet adequate to satisfy even the most 
voracious appetite. The awarding of more 
than twenty-five door prizes concluded 
the evening. The party's superlative organ- 
ization was evidence of the hard work of 
all the brothers and pledges and espe- 
cially that of our House Adviser, promi- 
nent attorney Lawrence Young, our emi- 
nent president, Howard Mango, and our 
Monte Carlo chairman, Craig Duncan. 

The U. S. C. Student Life Commission, 
chartered by President John Hubbard, 
recently held an all-day Fraternity- 
Sorority Conference, which Brother Mike 
Yuskis attended as our chapter's dele- 
gate. Topics included the question of 
how to increase the number of rushees 
and the need to keep our Greek System 
in step with the times, partly through 
elimination, as our chapter has done, of 
the antiquated, sadistic concept of hazing. 

Our annual Moonlight Girl competi- 
tion is fast approaching. The super- 

numerary activities will begin with a 
"Moonlight Car Rally," and culminate in 
a "Moonlight Weekend" at the posh Palm 
Desert Racquet Club in Palm Springs. 
All the brothers fully expect that our new 
Moonlight Girls will be as spirited, help- 
ful, and attractive as our current Court. 

Thanks in large part to the efficiency 
of our treasurer, Mark Pascoo, all the 
brothers are anxiously awaiting the pur- 
chase of new chairs for our cavernous 
dining room. Our living room has already 
been improved by the addition of several 
houseplants, purchased by Chapter Ad-

TT he spring story began with Rich 
Pierce being elected President along 
with a corps of dynamic officers. A large 
pledge class assured us of continued

closeness of the brotherhood and active

made it there with many coming from 
out of state. It was followed by an early 
get-together back at school. Jim Ember- 
sets led the pre-school activities giving 
drinking lessons and directing house re- 

School got off to a bang with an off 
campus house party at what has been 
fondly named "Phi Sig East." This house 
was so named, because it is the residence 
of five brothers and visiting alumni. Most 
brothers with dates left around midnight 
but "the boys" stayed positioned around 
the keg watching "Meatball" play one 
man charades. 

Other formal activities have included 
Founders' Day with Alumni Adviser, 
Dick Taylor leading his barbershop quar- 
tet in old time favorites and Walt Bran- 
dies' famous story about the founding of 
the fraternity in Massachusetts. Walt is 
the oldest living Phi Sig at 91. Other ac- 
tivities will include Carnation Ball, the 
Potomac Boat Ride, house parties and 
many spontaneous parties wherever we 
make them.

r V he brothers of Eta Triton have just 
concluded another intensive academic 
period that has been marked by many 
projects and celebrations. Dan McGrath, 
the NCAA All-American Wrestler, has 
assumed command of the chapter and 

Spring, 1972 


immediately began to introduce new pro- 
grams to improve Eta Triton. Among 
some of the accomplishments achieved 
are a new rush program which favors 
personal contact between brothers and 
prospective candidates, and a new pledge 
program, which encompasses six weeks 
of training that leads to eventual total 
participation in chapter matters. 

Concerning our social program at Eta 
Triton, we have managed at a minimum 
of at least three sorority desserts each 
month which are bolstered by Friday af- 
ternoon happy hours at the house, game 
nights and special intramural activities 
for the brothers. Hopefully, the new bar 
being constructed by Bryan Carter and 
Jim Banas will be in use at the beginning 
of the spring quarter. 

At the annual winter carnival held at 
Bear Creek, a toboggan team, consisting 
of Dave Shulman, Rick Jones, Mike 
Ryan and others, took the third place 
trophy in the downhill run. On campus 
our bowling team took second honors 
and so far our basketball team is faring 
well in the interfraternity competition. 

Eta Triton is quite active in our uni- 
versity's IFC association. Ed Pullikens is 
the IFC president and Cliff Plummer 
is Chief Justice of the organization. The 
chapter as a whole has taken on the duty 
of subsidizing the IFC-backed Greek 
paper in the hopes of educating the aver- 
age college student in the real life of the 

The highlight of last quarter was the 
privilege of having as our guest speaker 
at the annual Founders' Day Banquet the 
illustrious president of the University of 
Akron, Dr. Dominic J. Guzzetta. Dr. 
Guzzetta most eloquently advocated the 
need for the use of the fraternity system 
on our college campuses today. At the 
end of the formalities our chapter pre- 
sented Dr. Guzzetta with a plaque and 
honorary membership in Eta Triton. 
Also during the banquet Howard Crotts 
was awarded the alumni award by 
the active chapter and Dave Shulman 
was presented the Rudisill award for 
being the most prominent undergraduate 
in the chapter.

/"Greetings to all brothers around the 
* J nation. March 1972 finds the broth- 
ers of Lambda Triton anxiously awaiting 
the arrival of those warm spring days. 

April 1st marked an important date on 
our social calendar, for on that day the 
second annual Alumni dinner-dance was 
held. By such an event we are attempt- 
ing to establish necessary Alumni back- 
ing, so that Lambda Triton will remain 
strong on the University of Rhode Island 
campus for many years to come. 

Also coming up shortly are the Olym- 

pics for the children at Ladd School, an 
institution for the retarded kids of Rhode 
Island. Active participation by the broth- 
ers of Lambda Triton in this event is 

Of more immediate concern to the 
brothers is next week's intramural wres- 
tling tournament. There are fifteen mem- 
bers participating in all weight classes, 
and hopes are high that the team, led by 
Coach "Calder", can cop the first-place 
crown. A victory in this tournament will 
surely boost our standing in school ath- 
letics. At the present time we stand in 
fifth place in intramural sports, having 
reached the semifinals in both football 
and basketball before bowing out. Soft- 
ball and golf, for which we are the 
defending champion, along with wres- 
tling, still remain on our athletic schedule. 

Under the newly-adopted open rush 
system on campus we now have 16 
pledges, and expect more in the very near 
future. However, this new rush system 
has caused much dissatisfaction among 
most fraternities on this campus. It stands 
a good chance to be modified or even 
repealed next year. 

Whatever the outcome, Lambda Triton 
will continue to strive and wear the name 
of Phi Sig proudly.

nr he start of a new semester was cele- 
brated by holding our annual Junior 
Moonlight Girl Dance, which was a big 
get-together of Phi Sigs young and old. 
We are looking forward to our next big 
social function. Founders' Day. We are 
planning to have a great time and will 
celebrate to the fullest. 

We have initiated eighteen new Little 
Sisters, who are fair and charming, and 
will contribute a more meaningful 
brother-sister relationship. They have 
helped keep our house in real decent 
shape. On the Sunday before Easter 
Break the Little Sister-Big Brother Break- 
fast will be held, the Little Sisters later 
taking their Big Brothers to Church. 

Our pledges this semester are fourteen 
strong, they are headed by President 
Pledge Creighton Hill. The pledges as 
well as actives have been helping Brother 
Blaine Nisson on his campaigning for 
Student Body President here at I.S.U. 
Brother Nisson won his office for Pres-

Robinson as soon as Brother Robinson 
can clean out his desk and move back to 
his Senatorial Office, which he won dur-

Arizona State University 

/"■hi Triton once more started this year 
^ on top! After a half semester of ins 
and outs we slipped into the right rut. 
We came off Number One scholastically, 
well above the men's all fraternity aver- 
age. The sororities will have their hands 
full scholastically this spring; beating off 
the Phi Sigs. 

Intramurals came off with a real bang 
this year; the brothers are holding a 
steady lead on first place in the fraternity 
division and second place over-all. Bas- 
ketball is next on the program and the 
Phi Sig ballhandlers are really up for 
this one. Special thanks for our intra- 
mural success this year should go to the 
Ballettes, a division of the Little Sisters. 
These girls have really been putting out 
for the house. 

Chi Triton remains strong and firm as 
twenty new brothers were initiated with 
five neophytes left behind to give our 
thirteen new pledges a hand. As usual, 
Chi Triton is the largest house on cam- 
pus again this year both in quantity and 
quality, with one hundred ten brothers 

While scholarship and intramurals 
seem to be our outstanding attributes this 
year, social functions are what we really 
excel in. All the brothers will eagerly 
arise to this year's 2nd annual Trojan- 
Tryout Spring Party. This is the climax 
of our social calendar with two days and 
one night at one of Arizona's water 
wonderlands. For all the brothers who 
attended last year's party, they will have 
their best fraternity suits on. 

Briefly a few of our other parties con- 
sist of a Boxer Short Party, Roman Toga 
Party, River Floats, Hayrides, and week- 
ly Exchanges.

most novel decorated car. Our VW deco- 
rated as a chicken and Col. Sanders, alias 
Brother Spruill, brought much laughter 
to the crowd. Undoubtedly the laughter 
was due to Brother Clay's and yours

Again, we'd like to recommend that

It is truly a worthwhile project. We've

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute 

/"^reetings. Brethren, from Gamma 
VJ Tetarton! 

Rushing proved to be extremely fruit- 
ful this year. We have 21 new candidates 
for our Ever-Growing Throng. Pledging 
is being conducted differently this year; 
instead of the usual hazing and harass- 
ment, we are treating them as associate 
brothers, although they will have some 
semblance of a traditional pre-initiation 
week. Most of the houses on campus have 
also survived the anti-fraternity sentiment 
prevalent last year. Even though this 
year's freshman class is 10% smaller, 
more have decided to join houses. 

Through the efforts of Brother Ethan 
Allen Hart we are now the only chapter 
in Region I to have an active Little 
Sisters corps. A by-law passed in March 
made it official, and now the Green 
Mountain Girls attack the fort almost 
weekly, wreaking havoc among the 
brotherhood, and being met with varying 
degrees of resistance. The Troy-Poultney 
Trail is now well-broken after the orig- 
inal brave-hearted explorers faced seem- 
ingly insurmountable obstructions, yet 

still unselfishly prodding onward toward 
the goal. 

We held our first annual (?) Founders' 
Day-Alumni Weekend in the middle of 
March. We were surprised at the turnout, 
as about 259c more alumni visited the 
house than we expected. Included among 
them was Ray Wilser, one of our Chap- 
ter Founders. 

Rensselaer's interest in Rensselaer was 
boosted by the sum of $150,000 due to 
the help of most of the houses on cam- 
pus. The loyal Phi Sigs were in there, 
taking part in the Phonothon that was 
held during February and March. We 
spent one night busily calling on our 
Alumni. By the way, this also helped 
increase the turnout on Alumni Weekend. 

Everything has been finalized with the 
house sponsoring an orphan. After writ- 
ing to several organizations, we decided 
on Children, Incorporated. Public opin- 
ion swayed us into the choice of an 
American Indian, and now Henry Black, 
a 10-year-old Navajo boy has become our 
foster child. 

During the past year, numerous broth- 
ers have joined honoraries. Rich Buell, 
Bud Walker, and Ron Bauman have 
joined Tau Beta Pi; Dave Bruns, now a 
student at the University of Colorado, 
has been selected for Phi Beta Kappa and 
Alpha Chi Sigma; Steve Bailey is now a 
member of Pi Tau Sigma; and Fred 
Scheibl is in Eta Kappa Nu. Len Lav- 
enda. Managing Editor of the Rensselaer

HP his spring semester marks the twen-

at Washington College and we thank the 
sixteen charter members for beginning 
the chapter, so that it could grow into 
what it is today. The semester started 
with a seafood rush party on the shores 
of the enchanting Chester River, which 
encouraged five new degenerates to 
pledge. We will be proud to accept them 
into our ranks and we hope that our new 
style initiation promotes close bonds of 

Big events soon to occur will be the 
annual Toga party, several pre-dinner 
martini hours, late afternoon croquet 
matches and Stunt Nite. 

Brother Jack Copeland should be con- 
gratulated for leading W. C.'s lacrosse 
team to a stunning victory over Yale and 
we hope that this season will bring 
Brother Copeland national recognition. 

We welcome all alumni to stop by 
when they're trucking through and wish 
to all Brothers a prosperous summer.

East Tennessee State University 

TThe Brothers of Zeta Tetarton con- 
tinue their balanced attack on excel- 
lence here at ETSU with high marks in 
academics, athletics, and social life. The 
brain trust maintained a campus ranking 
of third overall, while the muscle platoon 
finished well in the upper divisions in 
basketball, bowling, and table tennis. 
There is no standard to adequately meas- 
ure the prowess of our party teams, as 
shown by the performance of a demon- 
stration unit recently dispatched to the 
"one beer and early to bed gang" at VPI. 

Brothers Dave Willis and Petie Sams 
strengthened our position in the power 
structure with their appointments to the 
IFC Judicial Court. 

Spring sports should see the Phi Sigs 
dominate. Nine starters return from last 
year's strong softball team and our track- 
men figure to repeat as champions. Our 
swimming and tennis squads are working 
hard and should turn in prestigious per- 

The pinnacle of "partyese" is tradi- 
tionally the "C" Ball and this year's effort 
is already pointing toward the birth of 
new legends. Launch date is April 29 at 
the Camarra Inn in Elizabethton, Tenn. 

We are beginning a new pro-rate sys- 
tem of handling our finances and would 
like to exchange experiences with other

a foolproof plan?

fVT othing much happening here in the 
tree-lined suburbs of snow-covered 
Boston. Campus-wide confusion and

tations, are taking up our belts and dig- 
ging in. 

So situated (see Beta Tetarton letter,

particularly introspective. And being in 
some sense alienated by an anti-fraternity

The new officers and brothers hope to 
have a fruitful spring quarter rush. Using 
our Little Sisters last quarter in bringing 
out prospective pledges helped consider- 
ably, and the same tactics will probably 
be used again. 

Also with Spring the Phi Sigs at Car-

of the Greek Intramurals with Softball 
and Volleyball. Winter quarter sports 
proved to be a bit disappointing with a 
fourth-place finish for our basketball

We are now making plans for our 
future and the problems it presents. For

Southern Illinois University into the City

many new programs. 

These new programs will center around 
the chapter itself, instead of working with, 
through, and around the University. 
These and other activities, which are 
being carried on during the Spring, come 
at a very propitious time, since Spring 
quarter is a very active quarter when the 
members have much energy, giving the 
chapter the chance to become very active.

Wagner College 

HP he Lambda Tetarton Chapter of 
Phi Sigma Kappa at Wagner College 
continued to grow due to the acquisition 
of 12 new pledges this spring semester. 
This success can be attributed to two 
very impressive rushes and the sincere 
and friendly nature of the active brothers. 

Scholastically, Lambda Tet finished sec- 
ond in cumulative index among the fra- 
ternities on campus, falling just a few 
hundredths of a point behind the leader. 
This goes to show that Lambda Tet is 
conscious of the three Cardinal Principles 
of Fhi Sig — the Brothers united together 
to build character and scholastic achieve- 

As a further example of the together- 
ness of the Brotherhood, the fraternity 
lounge was given a brand-new com- 
plexion. Fresh paint, new furniture, and 
the addition of a pool table and bar have 
given the lounge a friendly and homey 
appearance. With this new look, the 
lounge has been used more by the Broth- 
ers as a place to get together, socialize, 
and thus enjoy the benefits of Brother- 


Athletically, we have spent the past 
few weeks competing in intramural bas- 
ketball and volleyball with a respectable 
record as the result of our work. The 
upcoming softball season brings high 
hopes for Lambda Tet. Two years ago 
we won the championship and last year 
we were edged out in the finals. 

Overall Phi Sig at Wagner is happy 
with its accomplishments this year and 
hopes to continue them in the tradition 
it is accustomed to.

/"Greetings, Brothers, from Mu Tetar- 
VJ ton. 

This winter has been another banner 
quarter for us brothers of the Youngs- 
town State University Chapter. We start- 
ed the quarter in style with a rousing 
New Year's Eve Party at classy Avalon 
Inn. More than 60 Brothers, active and 
alumni, turned out with their dates. Next 
on the social calendar was an enjoyable 
"Flick" party which featured such block- 
buster films as "W. C. Fields" and "The 
Little Rascals". The social season was 
topped off by a swim party at a beauti- 
ful indoor pool. All brothers who attend- 
ed were very pleased with it, as it was 
the first we've had. 

This has also been a successful winter 
for recruiting. Nine great new brothers 
have been installed, and we have six 
current pledges. These new brothers are 
helping enhance our reputation as one of 
the largest and best Greek organizations 
on campus. 

Another important event was the in- 
stallation of seven beautiful girls to the 
Little Sisters of The Triple T's. We have

cause and were glad to make our contri- 
bution. A huge number of Brothers,

Rutgers University 

A fter a relatively passive winter, 
f" the Phi Sigs of Nu Tetarton (Rutgers 
University, New Brunswick), plan an 
active spring semester. One of our most 
impressive accomplishments was our al- 
most perfect showing at the Phi Sig Dis- 
trict Basketball Tournament at Lehigh 
University, March 3. Under the coaching 
of Jay Geaman, the Rutgers Chapter was 
able to appear in the finals. Of the twelve 
teams in quest of the championship, 
only Pennsylvania was able to surpass us. 
Another "Phi Mung" activity earning 
high praise from all was the recent ex- 
change dinner between our house and 
the girls of Douglass College. Equally 
successful was our ski trip to Great 

However, the spring is yet to come, 
and "the boys want more activities." 
Immediately after spring recess, the 
House will concentrate on trying to raise 
money for the American Cancer Society. 
Rutgers ZBT sponsors a dance marathon 
every year, and a couple from each frater- 
nity dances for three straight days. As 
the couple dances, the remaining broth- 
ers collect money to donate for cancer 
research. The winning couple wins a trip 
to Europe, while their House receives a 
stereo set. This year's goal is $25,000! 
Dancing for Phi Sig this year will be Jay 
Geaman. The Community Project of this 
year's pledges is directed at raising money 

for the drive. The House hopes to raise 
at least $500 — hopefully much more. Yet, 
win or lose, the Phi Sigs realize that 
cancer research will end up being the big 
winner after this year's marathon. 

Another scheduled event is our trip to 
Madison Square Garden for the circus! 
Tickets have been ordered for late April, 
and the "Phi Mungs" anticipate seeing 
someone else put on a circus for a 
change. Also planned are band parties, 
record "mixers", and a trip to the shore 
in late April. The "Parents-Alumni Tea" 
is also coming up. 

As for the sports scene, John Fenwick 
made it to the finals in the interfraternity 
wrestling matches. Also Baseball Coach 
Bill Korzun sees another great season for 
Nu Tetarton.

Calutations from the Brothers at RJT. 
*^This past quarter has been very busy 
for us here at Up Tet. To begin with, our 
annual Alumni-Winter Weekend went 
well with our new Moonlight Queen Jan 
Tremlett being crowned. 

Rush was also successful in that we 
gained eight new pledges, and we are 
proud to say that we have added eight 
newly initiated Brothers to our Ever- 
Growing Throng. 

The next event the Brothers were in- 
volved in was hosting the Region II 
Basketball Tournament. The visiting 
Brothers from seven surrounding chap- 
ters all enjoyed themselves. The tourna- 
ment was won by Edinboro State. 

As of this article our alumni chairman, 
Bob Burns, is busy making all the ar- 
rangements for our Founders' Day Ban- 
quet, and our social chairman, Brother 
Wilson, is making the arrangements for 
our Spring Semi-Formal Dance. 

Something that other chapters may find 
interesting is an agreement that our alum- 
ni have made with us; it is called the 
Matching Fund and it works like this: 
the alumni will match a sum of money 
up to $200.00 that is made in a function 
in which all the Brothers participate. So 
far this has worked fairly well with the 


Brothers earning $80.00 in one function, 
with more being planned. 

Finally, we are proud to announce the 
beginning of our new Little Sisters pro- 
gram. There are now nineteen new Sisters 
of the Triple T's.

already solid soccer team. 

We had the pleasure of hosting Re-

Pat to make Region IV the strongest

locally popular bands. Our two concerts 
with Ralph last year were extremely suc- 
cessful and we have an upcoming concert 
scheduled with Mutt-Lee. 

President Charles Oberly has initiated 
a series of 50-50 drawings. Most of the 
proceeds from these drawings will go into 
our new house improvement plan. 

We had our Founders' Day dinner on 
March 18 at Fernwood. We would like 
to thank Alumni who attended and 
showed an interest in our chapter. Up- 
coming events are the Moonlight Girl 
Formal and our annual go-to-hell party. 

We have had a very successful athletic 
program this spring. In interfraternity 
play we have won the bowling champion- 
ship. Also, congratulations to diver Barry 
Gilmore on his performance in the 
NCAA finals. 

The brothers of Beta Pentaton would 
like to take this opportunity to invite the 
brotherhood to visit our chapter. The 
skiing has been less than excellent this 
winter; however, a host of events and 
activities has been planned for the 
Poconos this summer. Many brothers will 
be staying in the house over the summer 
months and will be glad to accommodate 
you. Hope to see you.

University of Utah 

rjAMM* Pentaton had a full social 
VJ calendar Winter quarter with a tub- 
ing party, Wine Tasting Party, a movie 
party, and about ten kegs. 

Rush was slow as usual. We pledged 
two men, soon to be activated. We re- 
cently activated our Little Sisters, who 
have been an asset to our house. We hope 
to enlarge the Little Sister group. 

With our new chapter adviser, Mike 
Taylor, we are attempting to improve 
relations with Alumni and also the Uni- 
versity. A quarterly alumni newsletter 
has been started and we have plans for 
a fish fry and kegger with local Alumni 
on the Great Salt Lake Beach. 

IFC at the University of Utah has 
undergone a change in leadership and 
policies. Gamma Pentaton will be sup- 
porting IFC for a change. 

The Phi Sigs are currently leading in 
Utah's Intramural program. However, 
our lead was hurt by not getting to the 
basketball playoffs. Our illustrious wres- 
tling team had a record of zero wins and 
four losses, three of them by pins. Our 
house, 75 c /c skiers, failed to qualify a 
ski team. Of the ten men signed up to 
race, only one navigated the course cor- 
rectly to the end. We hope spring quarter 
is better to us. 

Coming social events for spring quarter 
include our annual Moonlight Girl For- 
mal and the Phi Sig A-Go-Go during 
Greek Week. 

Membership is low at Gamma Penta- 
ton. We hope to pledge several men 
spring quarter and we are currently work- 
ing on plans for a strong summer rush

Northeastern University 

Tf his winter has been truly successful 
in all areas of concentration for 
Delta Pentaton at Northeastern. 

Our Rush Program has been termed 
the "Best on campus" after it was learned 
we had initiated eight new pledges for 
the Winter Quarter. The probable reason 
for such success was due to a new Rush 
Program mentioned in the Fall SIGNET. 
A program of Boston Bruin Hockey 
Films, Beer and an Open Party attracted 
about 65 prospective Pledges. The films 
went over great to the Rushees, 95% of 
whom reside in the N. U. dorms in the 
heart of Bruin country — Boston! We con- 
gratulate Dave Sanderson, Jim Danton 
and Joe Dempsey on becoming brothers. 

Athletically we remained number one 
by capturing for the second year in the 
last three, the "All Sports Trophy," in- 
dicative of all-round athletic excellence 
for the past year. Our intramural football 


team not only won the IFC Champion- 
ship with a season record of 9 and 1, but 
also entered the final playoffs for the 
!"University Cup", given to the best intra- 
mural football team on campus. 

Social life has also been on the up- 
swing at Delta Pent with the most suc- 
cessful series of Open Parties brothers 
have seen in a while. The quarter high- 
jlight was the bussing of girls from Endi- 
Icott Jr. College (a private girls' school) 
linto Boston for a party. Additional activ- 
ities included a "Pajama Party", spon- 
sored by the pledges, and a weekend of 
skiing in the hills of Maine. 

We welcome any and all Phi Sigs visit- 
ing Boston (Epsilon Deuteron includ- 
ed! ! !); so come over and let us enjoy 
lyour company and exchange ideas.

Ehe Brothers of Zeta Pentaton have 
accomplished many goals since the 
'. issue of The SIGNET. To begin with, 
[ve took first place in the Fiesta Hidalgo 
Parade with our float of The First Oil 
Well in Hidalgo County. We took second 
place in IFC Football. We were beaten 
r. the last 30 seconds of the game by 
Phi Kappa Theta. In basketball we were 
mdefeated and took a first place. 

For the first time in the history of 
3 an American University, Greek Week 
was held. We are proud to say that we 
tame out all-points champions and re- 
teived the first-place trophy. 

Socially, last semester and this semes- 
er have been great. Last semester our four 
op social events were our Playboy Party, 
Halloween Party, Pajama Party, and our 
|"Jew Year's Eve Party. We tried some- 
thing new this semester, we combined 
pur Alumni Party with Founders' Day.

California State College 
t Fullerton 

At spring break, the brothers of Iota 
Pentaton find themselves busily pre- 
aring to host Region IV's first basketball 
ijurnament, scheduled for the middle of 
ipril on the Cal-State Fullerton campus. 

This will hopefully become an event 
which will bring brothers from all chap- 
ters in the area together on an annual 
basis, something that has been lacking in 
the past. We are one chapter that regrets 
it has not made enough of an effort to 
maintain close and purposeful contact 
with our neighboring chapters, and we 
aim to do something about it. 

The re-election of President Mark Cur- 
rier this February will ensure the continu- 
ance of the many progressive programs he 
and his executive committee implemented 
last fall. High on Brother Currier's list of 
priorities for the spring include the revi- 
sion of the chapter's out-dated by-laws, 
the establishment of a savings program 
that will finally start us down the road to 
permanent housing, and the elimination 
of that pernicious status of "inactive" 

Spring rush netted the chapter two 
pledges, who will benefit from the most 
contemporary of pledge education yet de- 
vised at Iota Pentaton. Our 12-man fall 
class was initiated in January at a gala 
banquet which also featured the presenta- 
tion of our 1972 Moonlight Girl. Debbie 

Long-time chapter adviser and now 
District Governor Conrad Tuohey, 
Lambda '58, has thrown his hat in the 
ring for the Congressional seat of Cali- 
fornia's 23rd District. Brother Tuohey's 
inevitable victory in November will give 
Iota Pentaton its second representative in 
Washington, the first being U. S. Senator 
John Tunney, who was initiated as an 
honorary member in 1970.

University of California 
at Santa Barbara 

T -1 he brothers of *2K at Univ. of 
Calif. Santa Barbara have had an 
exciting and rewarding year so far. Fall 
quarter saw ten men pledge the house as 
the Omicron pledge class. Kappa Penta- 
ton competed in fall intramurals such as 
football and rugby while achieving the 
highest GPA of all fraternities on cam- 
pus. Our Christmas party was the high 
point (literally) of holiday festivities. A 
special delegation was sent to see the 
WHO perform at the L.A. Forum and 
Phi Sigs also volunteered to take crippled 
children of the Santa Barbara area to 
one of our late football team's games. 
Mick McDiarmid participated on the var- 
sity rugby team, while Jim Gazdecki was 
elected to represent the Greeks in student 

The Rodger Edwards Scholarship 
award was recently given to George 
Fulco and the Duane Allman Memorial 
Award went to Ethan Samples for faith- 
ful devotion to the man by the same 
name. Activities for the past winter quar- 

ter have included three new members of 
the Pi pledge class and even more inter- 
est in intramurals and student govern- 
ment. Gordon Williamson, a new pledge, 
was elected the new Residence Hall pres- 
ident and the KP soccer and basketball 
teams were active in school playoffs. In 
mid-quarter the entire house, including a 
few Alums, had a retreat to discover new 
directions, leadership problems and a re- 
turn to basic brotherhood without out- 
side influences. Needless to say, the day 
was a tremendous success and the house 
is now stronger for it. 

Fifteen new "Little Sisters" were re- 
cently initiated with the guiding help of 
Wes Phelan and other concerned broth- 
ers. The last two weeks saw KP active in 
Greek Week on our campus and an excel- 
lent Parents' Weekend. Brother Jim Evans 
helped more than a little to show both 
students and parents that now, more 
than ever. Phi Sigma Kappa is a viable 
social organization.

Ferris State College 

/"Greetings to all our brothers from 
the brothers of Lambda Pentaton 
Chapter at Ferris State College. 

The past Winter term was moderately 
successful with respect to our rushing 
program. We had anticipated a problem 
due to the lowering of the drinking age 
here in Michigan, but so far it has not 
affected pledging of new members. How- 
ever, Spring term will be the true test of 
the effectiveness of our rushing program. 
Any successful methods of rushing in 
other chapters will be warmly received 
as suggestions in helping our program. 

Also the past term saw the develop- 
ment of an alumni association put in 
motion. We all look forward to its de- 
velopment, as it will strengthen the last- 
ing brotherhood of Phi Sigma Kappa here 
at Ferris. 

For the coming Spring term, the 
brothers are looking forward to the activ- 
ities with our Alumni, such as our annual 
canoe expedition on the Pine River and 
the annual Spring Weekend. Also, we 
hope to continue our success in intra- 
murals. Last term we finished second in 
the novice division in basketball and 
hope this winning attitude will continue 
in all our endeavors.

CPRiNG semester has been busy here 
" at Northern Illinois. Under Glenn 
Hofeldt as Rush Chairman, we the 
brothers of Pi Pent obtained 23 pledges 
— the largest pledge Class in the history 
of our chapter. These main changes 
helped us achieve such a great pledge 
class — (1) a Sunday Smoker where the 
brothers are met informally, (2) beer at 
our open house, (3) improved rushing 
techniques such as explaining every aspect 
of pledging and brotherhood before the 
man is given a bid. 

We have not just been rushing. This 
year for Winter Carnival we took First 
Place with our booth. Also, one of our 
brothers, Bruce Peters, was head of the

C igma Pentaton was most honored to 
^ have "Mr. Phi Sig," Bert Brown, 
present at its Founders' Day celebration. 
Much cooperation and fine organization 
made this event most successful. Once 
again, on behalf of the Brotherhood, I 
would like to thank Brother Brown for 
a most memorable evening. 

The Brotherhood is proud of being 
first among the six fraternities with a 
hard-earned 2.8 index. Brother Neal Val- 
lins, a Dean's list student, has been in- 
ducted into the Biology Honor Society. 

We have one of the largest pledge 
classes on campus this semester. The guys 
seem eager to meet the challenge after 
one week. Placing these pledges on vari- 
ous committees has given this chapter 
some added strength in certain areas. 

Bob Bailey, Steve Thaler, and Howie 
Guttman are working on a softball game 
with a local police department. This 
game will benefit the Jimmy Fund, a 
cancer research foundation for children. 
With the Little Sister program in high 
gear, these girls should add a lot of color 
to the remainder of our planned activ- 
ities. The brothers are also scheduling 
the annual seniors' party as well as Par- 
ents' Day.

to improve, invites any ideas that other

visited our chapter quite unexpectedly 
the morning after hell night. We are sorry

lects money. Saturday the Brothers then 
march in downtown Pittsburgh. This year 
the money was turned over to the Heart 
Fund. The Executive Director of the

sessions cleared the air and we were ready 
to go. 

Support for sports teams was tremen- 
dous among Little Sisters and non-par- 
ticipating brothers. This strong support 
and backing was a big help in boosting 
our bowling team to a second-place 
finish in B league. This finish also earned 
the team a spot in the I.F.C. Tourney. 
IPhi Sig rooters also turned out in force 
jto cheer its three starters on the I.F.C.

starters than any other fraternity had on 

During the Greek Week activities here

again anytime. That goes for any Phi Sig 
vho is looking for a good time. 

Now that things have slowed down a 
ittle, the brothers are concentrating on 
>ur charity project. Together with 

Lambda Chi we are sponsoring our First 
Annual 48-Hour Softball Game. The pro- 
ceeds of the game will go to a selected 
charity each year. This year's recipient 
will be Fr. Breweri of the Marianist 
Order for his work with the underprivi- 
leged families of Dayton.

Fairleigh Dickinson University 

/"" reetings. Fellow Phi Sigs: 

We at Fairleigh Dickinson Colony 
have had a good year. In our fall pledge 
class, we inducted seven new brothers. 
We now have six in our spring pledge 
class. Our all-around existence is well- 
known, and we are now the fifth nation- 
al of all the fraternities and sororities 
present on campus. Our social standing is 
greater than ever and we have the true 
spirit. In December we acquired a house 
near campus and we have 1 1 brothers 
living in, with hope for more in the Fall. 
In sports, we started off great. In the 
Fall, in I.F.S.C. and interfraternity. we 
were undefeated. Our best game was 
against Alpha Delta Sigma and we con- 
quered them 49-12. In a very hard- fought 
battle. Brother Silverman was great. He 
threw for all seven TD's. In basketball, 
we played in the Region II Tournament 
at Lehigh, but we suffered an unfortu- 
nate defeat in the opening round. We 
are bowling now and in fine position for 
the I.F.S.C. trophy. Brother Thor is lead- 
ing our team with a 181 average. Our 
softball team looks good, and we hope to 
win there. Overall, we have a long and 
tough sports schedule. 

President Hilary Thor, our only gradu- 
ating brother, will stay on as alumni 
adviser. He, with Rich Reale (Java) 
(Iota 71), our chapter adviser, and 
Dr. Terry Marciano, our faculty adviser, 
have hopes for a bigger and better 
brotherhood next year. Brother Steve 
Negri was nominated for Union Board 
Rep. on the I.F.S.C. and Brother Howard 
Robin for I.F.S.C. Treasurer. 

Scholastically, our colony is one of the 
highest on campus. Brother Carl Mar- 
tucci is our resident genius, sporting a 
3.9 Cum. Overall everyone is on the 
stick, and meeting up to our scholarship 
obligations. The majority of us are Biol- 
ogy and Business majors, with a few 
others slipping in. 

Socially, we celebrated our first Found- 
ers' Day with success. After dinner we 
had our weekly jam session at the house. 
We have very talented musical brothers. 
March 1 1th we had our first Parents' Day 
at the house and it was a great success.

Qver the past few months we man- 
aged to felicitate brothers from East 
Tennessee State and Tennessee Wesleyan 
at our weekly parties. We would welcome 
visits from any other Phi Sig chapters or 
colonies, but please bring brothers who 
can stay up past midnight! Little Sisters 
became a welcome addition to the colony 
as 16 of VPI's "lovelys" accepted our 
invitation to membership. We now have 
the second largest Little Sister chapter on 
campus. The girls will have the privilege 
of helping out with our parties, as well as 
talking to prospective brothers and en- 
couraging them to go "Phi Sig." On 
Valentine's Day they presented each of 
the brothers with a pair of boxer shorts 
embroidered with red hearts. 

Lighthouse, the hottest Canadian Rock 
Group, trucked on over to our humble 
house after a recent concert date at 
Tech. Drummer for the group, "Skip" 
Prokof, presented to the Colony an 
autographed "Five" for showing them a 
great time.

*Greek Apologia 

(continued from page 10) 

sororities in existence today, each with tens of thou- 
sands of members. With strong, dedicated, idealistic 
leadership, a willing work force stands ready to attack 
the problems of America: poverty, pollution, poor 
education, racism, war. 

Out-dated? Irrelevant? Frivolous? Perhaps the fra- 
ternal system deserves a stay of execution, maybe even 
parole. It may be a useful tool for achieving the ideal- 
istic humane goals of America today. 

* Apologia, defined according to Webster: Something 
to justify an act or course of action that appears to 
others to merit disapproval.

The President's Message 

RUSH . . . the Membership Selection process by which all 
Fraternities including Phi Sigma Kappa, add new life- 
blood to their membership . . . is with us again with this issue 
of The SIGNET. It seems appropriate to review the basic princi- 
ples of "Rush", as nearly all the Rushees will be exposed to it 
for the first time, and many Phi Sigs will be involved as active 
members for the first time. 

To the Actives, your goal is the selection of men who will 
learn, then carry on and perpetuate the ideals of Phi Sigma 
Kappa, as expressed in our Cardinal Principles. You are also 
choosing the men with whom you will live, participate in activ- 
ities, and develop warm friendships for the remainder of your 
college career. More importantly, you will meet new friends and 
associates with whom you will maintain contact for the rest of 
your life. It is these lifelong friendships that are the hidden, major 
portion of the iceberg of Fraternity membership. 

To the Rushee the above applies equally, except in reverse. 
You are choosing a set of ideals, taught and perpetuated by Phi 
Sigma Kappa. Learn what these ideals are; be inquisitive; get to 
know the men who are your potential brothers; and choose your 
fraternity wisely, for it will be with you for a long time. 

If each of you— Actives and Rushees— works hard at this 
most important aspect of Fraternity life, the results are certain 
to be gratifying to you . . . your chapter . . . and to Phi Sigma

Home of Epsilon Hexaton Inducted 
May 13, 1972 

The purpose of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and 
State University is to provide the intellectual at- 
mosphere, the scholarly guidance, and the modern fa- 
cilities for the education of men and women of the 
Commonwealth, the region, and the Nation. 

In addition to the basic obligation to provide ap- 
propriate educational opportunities for the qualified 
youth who seek admission, the University projects 
its scope of activities to anticipate and fulfill the in- 
tellectual needs of the State and the Nation through 
a balanced program of resident and off-campus in- 
struction, extension activities, and research, both 
fundamental and applied. 

Virginia Tech is celebrating its 100th year of service 
to the State and the Nation this year, but its story be- 

Donaldson Brown Center for Continuing Education, containing con- 
ference rooms, a 600-seat auditorium, large and small dining rooms, 
and overnight accommodations for guests 

Burruss Hall at V.P.I, housing administrative offices and a 3,000-seat 

auditorium; Tower contains a Memorial Carillon, a gift of Tech 


gan in 1862 when President Abraham Lincoln signed 
the Morill Land Grant Act into law. Dr. Harvey 
Black and the Rev. Peter Whisner. both Trustees of a 
small Methodist school located in Blacksburg (the 
failing Preston and Olin Institute), decided to try to 
convince the State legislature, then hopelessly dead- 
locked over the disposition of the land grant money, 
to locate the proposed new college in Blacksburg. It 
was decided to offer the State the Preston and Olin 
Institute property and a $20,000 donation from Mont- 
gomery County. In March, 1872, the offer was accept- 
ed by the State, and Governor Gilbert C. Walker 
signed the bill establishing the Virginia Agricultural 
and Mechanical College at Blacksburg. the Montgom- 
ery County voters agreeing to the proposed donation 
later that year. 

On October 1, 1872, the college that was to become 
Virginia's largest University began its first session 
with 43 students, a president, two faculty members, 
a librarian, and one building of the former Preston and 
Olin Institute. 

The first 20 years of the new college were filled with 
difficulties, confusion, and political interference — the 
rule rather than the exception at most land grant col- 
leges of the day. It was during the administration of 
Dr. John M. McBryde (1891-1907) that the college 
began its great growth. It was also during the McBryde 
administration that the words "Polytechnic Institute" 
were added to the name, and the college became pop- 
ularly known as "Virginia Tech." In 1944 "Agricul- 
tural and Mechanical College" was dropped and the 
legal name became the Virginia Polytechnic Institute 
and State University, more accurately reflecting the 
scope of the instruction offered at Blacksburg. Another 
interesting aspect of Virginia Tech is that during the 
last 7 years the image of the University community 
changed from a purely military school to an active 

Summer, 1972 

and progressive civilian educational center. Recently 
women were allowed to apply and their numbers have 
risen to 2,000 in just 5 short years. 

Virginia Tech has been served by 11 presidents 
since its establishment. Its current president, Dr. T. 
Marshall Hahn, Jr., assumed the presidency in 1962 
at age 35, the youngest president in the University's 

Virginia Tech today serves the State, the Nation, 
and the World in the three important fields of instruc- 
tion, research and extension. 

History of Alpha Kappa Epsilon 

Alpha Kappa Epsilon local fraternity, which was 
later to become Phi Sigma Kappa Colony at Vir- 
ginia Polytechnic Institute, was founded in the fall of 
1961 by thirteen close friends who had graduated 
from Blacksburg High School and who thereby 
sought to preserve the fellowship they had experienced 
through high school. 

The Founding Fathers were definitely not lacking 
in intellectual ability. Five were selected for Who's 
Who in American Colleges, and Brother Bill Lewis 
was Virginia Tech's first Rhodes Scholar, who graduat- 
ed with a perfect 4.0 average in Physics. Campus 
activities became a prominent part of the brothers' 
lives. Brothers of the AKE at Virginia Tech have held 
positions as editor of the campus paper, The Collegiate 
Times, member of the Regimental Staff of the Corps 
of Cadets, Honor Court, and Civilian Student Senate. 
Brothers have been active in some of Virginia Tech's 
most elite clubs, the Cottilion and German Clubs. 

Since the first pledge class in the fall of 1962, over 
200 men have pledged themselves to the brotherhood, 
all promising to develop scholarship, friendship, 
leadership, integrity and brotherhood. 

Phi Sigma Kappa Colony at Virginia Tech has been 
active in interfraternity affairs since May 1965 when 
it was admitted to the Interfraternity Council. It was 
one of the first 10 IFC fraternities; there are now 26 
on the campus. 

In order to facilitate business matters AKE became 
incorporated on May 21, 1963. Here at Virginia Tech, 
it has had three fraternity houses, including the one 
in which its members now reside. 

AKE has long had the reputation of having a most 
close, yet diverse brotherhood. Young men from all 
areas of the East Coast contribute their talents to the 
growth of the fraternity. All walks of life are represent- 
ed from farmers to pilots. Each new pledge class 
brings new blood into the fraternity — this blood soon 
grows together with that of the older brothers. 

The Phi Sigma Kappa Colony has always had an 
active interest in University sports. Within the last 2 
years it has managed to win the IFC Softball Cham- 
pionship, and the University Championship in Soft- 


(fW7 ith a little help from our friends" at East Ten- 

W nessee State, and Chapter Consultant Jim 
Borgan, Virginia Polytechnic Institute became the site 
of the Epsilon Hexaton chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa. 
Since the day we were tapped as a colony by the bro- 
thers of Psi (U. of Va.), we had been waiting im- 
patiently for induction day, and May 13, 1972 was 
definitely a day to remember, when Epsilon Hexaton 
was installed as Phi Sigma Kappa's 88th chapter. 

Epsilon Hexaton was founded as Alpha Kappa Ep- 
silon local fraternity in 1961. The thirteen AKE 
Charter Brothers were graduates of Blacksburg High 
School and formed the brotherhood in anticipation of 
the social void which faced civilians in a school prima- 
rily military oriented. Charter AKE Brother Bill Lewis, 
was named as Virginia Tech's first Rhodes Scholar. 

East Tennessee State provided the induction team 
for the gala occasion. The "half a beer and early to 
bed gang", minus the talents of Bill Justis, performed 
the ritual ceremony under the watchful eyes of Rick 
Snowdon, Bert Brown, and Bill Aaron. Jim Morris of 
Tennessee Wesleyan provided moral support to the 
tired and overworked ETSU Phi Sigs. 

Following the day long ceremonies, brothers of 
Zeta Tetarton, Omicron Tetarton, and Epsilon Hex- 
aton, retired to the house for a pre-banquet cocktail 
hour. Slowly, but surely they ambled to nearby Con- 
tinuing Education Center for the banquet and the 
presentation of the charter. President Frank Scott 
received the charter for the thirty new brothers from 
Region III Vice President Vernon Stewart.

President Frank Scott as Grand President Bill Aaron looks on 


Little Sisters, attending the banquet, also received 
their new pins. In the ranks of the Little Sisters are 
Phi Sig Moonlight Girl, Kathy Deemer, a senior at 
nearby Radford College, and "Tech Ladies" Margie 
Snead, Linda Miller, CeCe Cooney, Peggy Briggs, 
Jayne Pasley, Merry Strawser, Terry Parent, Cathy 
Healy, Missy Whidden, Marianne Synoski, Linda 
Phipps, Vickie Burford, and Mary Minor. 

Brother Bert Brown, former national president and 
current Editor of The Signet, honored Epsilon Hexaton 
as keynote speaker, delivering a talk on the importance 
of the fraternity today. I. D. Wilson, Gamma Deuteron 
(Iowa State) '14 and former Virginia Tech Professor, 
spoke off the cuff to the crowd at the banquet. Brother

I. D. even has it over Bert Brown, "Mr. Phi Sig", in 
fraternity seniority. The brothers of Epsilon Hexaton 
had the privilege of presenting "I. D." with his 50 
year certificate early last year. 

Epsilon Hexaton rocked away the night after the 
banquet. We were glad to entertain both chapter con- 
sultants, Wes Mann and Jim Borgan, as well as faculty 
advisers, Brothers Richard Walker and Dean Carter 
at one of our usual wild parties. We were sorry to see 
ETSU brothers retire early, but it is a long drive back 
to Johnson City. Many thanks to everyone at National 
for their help and consideration.

University's annual Student Recognition Day dinner. 
He received the ECAC trophy for academic prowess 
and athletic ability, and the Bosey Reiter award as 
the top leader in the senior class. With them is Irvine 
Johnstone, Blake's father. The younger Johnstone at 
Lehigh was an all-star linebacker in football, a base- 
ball letterman and an intramural wrestling champion. 
He was a 3.0 student in the College of Arts and 
Science. He is entering Duke University Law School 
in the Fall. 

This is the second year in a row that a Lehigh Phi 
Sig has won the coveted Bosey Reiter award at Lehigh. 
Jerry Berger, Nu '71 of Reading, Pa., won it in 1971.

On Behalf of 
the Much-Maligned Lecture 

i ■ , ■%. 

By Dr. James E. Sefton, Xi P (Fac.) 
I Former Chapter Adviser and Associate Professor of History 
at San Fernando Valley State College 

Dr. James E. Sefton 

( (TI77ell, another hour wasted, listening to Pro- 
W f essor Snarf go on about the archaeology of 
Bougainville. Boy, lectures are a drag." How many 
times does some variation of that sentiment follow an 
hour in a lecture hall? And how many times does the 
experience lead to a general criticism of the lecture as 
a teaching method? 

To be quite honest, there are too many poor lec- 
tures delivered in the halls of ivy every day — badly 
researched, poorly organized, hard to follow, unattrac- 
tively delivered, and given by professors whose interest 
and forte is not lecturing. While these cases are indeed 
suitable objects of criticism and correction (often diffi- 
cult), they do not validate rejection of the lecture 
approach in general. Lectures are not outmoded or 
irrelevant. They are viable and highly useful educa- 
tional tools. We should understand them for what they 
are, and not expect them to do that which they cannot 

Students and professors should not think of the tra- 
ditional lecture course as a divided highway, the out- 
bound lanes to be travelled on lecture days and the 
inbound ones on exam days. True, one of the basic 
purposes of a lecture is to impart a body of knowledge 
or information not readily available in another form. 
Convenience for the student is therefore a chief 
motive. Assuming for the sake of simplicity that each 
lecture in a 15-week, 3-unit course were based on one 
book, the student would have to read and digest forty- 
five books per course per semester to acquire the same 

Taking notes is a time-honored way of preserving 
information, but more is required if the student is to 
be more than a walking tape-recorder. There must be 
a process of intellectual chemistry going on too, and 
it should start while the lecture is in progress. Obvi- 
ously, note taking is the primary task during the lec- 
ture, and so the intellectual process must continue 
after the lecture is over. Ideally, an hour shortly fol- 
lowing the lecture should be devoted to disassembling 
its ideas and information, mulling it over, and recon- 
structing it in various different ways. And as the course 
progresses, each lecture should be tooled and fitted 
into a general interpretive picture of the subject matter 

or better yet, into each of several different but 

equally intelligent interpretive pictures. 

It is as much a function of lectures to raise ques- 
tions as to provide information. Yet patience here is 
an unrecognized virtue. The spontaneous question 
asked at 8:19 on Monday might provoke a more 
stimulating discussion if it were considered for a while 
and raised at the Friday afternoon office hour. Even 
worse than impatience in seeking answers is the notion, 
strengthened by misunderstanding of the lecture con- 
cept, that education operates on the vendomat theory 
— that one drops his question in the slot, pushes the 
button, and gets "the" answer. Coins like "How many 
members has the House of Lords" will work the ma- 
chine. But "Why did Lincoln follow the policies he 
did" is coin of the realm for the purpose of puchasing 
a few days in an intellectual pottery shop. 

Approaches to lectures and to examinations are 
usually interdependent. A student who thinks of him- 
self as a temporary receptacle for material acquired in 
lecture probably also follows the juke box theory of 
examinations. He plays whatever record he thinks cor- 
responds to the button the professor pressed. What he 
should be doing is writing a symphony in ideas. Cer- 
tainly — some professors ask questions which call only 
for regurgitation. They may be conditioned to expect 
it from all too frequent experiences of getting little else. 
And they probably would be delighted to see their 
lecture material made the basis of some interesting and 
thoughtful analysis. 

Finally, there is the matter of presentation. A lecture 
can be dull and yet valuable for its content and clarity; 
another can be a Broadway extravaganza and yet quite 
confusing and shallow. Lecturing, fielding questions, 
leading discussion, guiding seminars, and tutoring in- 
dividuals are all separate skills, and excellence in one 
does not necessarily mean excellence in the others. 
Better to be one of seven hundred listening to a man 
lecture, if that is what he does best, than to be one of 
ten in his seminar, if that is his weakest format. In 
some ways it might be nice if no classes ever exceeded 
a dozen people, regardless of the form of presentation. 
But the straight lecture, particularly to large audiences, 
is likely to be around for a while. Its utility, and its 
intelligent utilization, should be appreciated. 


Omega Actives and Alumni at Founders' Days Celebration 


TThe Spirit of Omega Chapter lives on! We have never had 
large endowments or fat bank accounts to fall back on. 
Instead, we have had to rely on the personal hard work of a 
small but very dedicated group of active members and alums. 
Life at Omega has been a fulfilling and rewarding experience 
for us all. We must now build on this spirit and solidify 
the position of our house. We have coming back next fall 
a large and very enthusiastic membership which promises to 
make next year a very successful one. We look towards next 
fall as a challenge to continuing and extending the kind of 
active and alumni spirit which was generated during our 
Alumni Day. 

We wish to thank past president, Pat Lickiss, who was in- 
strumental in the planning of this function. This was the 
first truly large and successful Alumni Day our Chapter has 
had in a long time — one that was long overdue. Brothers Tom 
Balk '72 and Dave Streitweiser 74 handled the planning of 
the house activities, and alumni Brothers. Rich Meier and 
Warren Schoonover, spread the invitations to the alums, and 
got Cal's enthusiastic new head football coach, Mike White, 
to be the featured speaker. It goes almost without saying 
that the turn out of alumni and active brothers contributed 
the most to the success of the day. 

The day itself was one of good food, good times, and good 
friends. It is always a good day when old friends can re- 
visit their old house and meet friends that they have not seen 
in years. We never miss an opportunity to show off our cook, 
Rosella Washington, the best cook on campus and she proved 
it again this day. After dinner Coach Mike White dominated 
the atmosphere with his charged personality. He took this 
opportunity to congratulate us all on the fraternity system, 
and way of life. He stressed the continuing need for the 
kind of spirit that "true fraternity" generates and preserves 
in us all. The coming season was the topic he just could not 
avoid. We all were interested to hear what new ideas he had 
and what "war" plans he was conjuring up for the next 
season. Mr. White emphasized that he was not promising any- 
thing new and revolutionary. Instead, he said that what needs 
to be done is to strengthen the spirit of the team and develop 
the players in all possible ways. "Football is an academic 
subject just like math or history", says Mr. White, and he 
aims at getting it recognized as such. A new day has come 
to football, and players and coaches must realize this or fail. 
His aims are to develop the players' skills both on and off 
the field. He also promises to bring the most necessary in- 
gredient of them all to Cal — a winning spirit. This is 
something we hope will also exist here at our house and 
among all brothers of Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Following Coach White's presentation, we heard a dis- 
tinguished list of house officers and alumni speak. The high- 
lights of the evening were the presentation of numerous 
awards to our alumni members for their outstanding con- 
tributions to both our house and the alumni club. A special 
service award was given to Brother Joe Reichel '36 for his 
continuous devotion to building and preserving our alumni 
association and his work for the house. Brother John Hen- 
dricks '14 was also honored in a very special way. A plaque 
containing his original diploma now hangs in our chapter 
room as a constant reminder of this great man. I would now 
like to take a moment to quote a passage out of our alumni 
newsletter to explain the events leading to this plaque: 
"An example of real Brotherhood" 

"How frequently it is suggested, but how rarely it is done! 
Our late Brother John A. Hendricks, Omega '14, provided in 
his will for a gift of S6500 to Omega Chapter, and that 
amount was received early in the spring of 1971 at a time 
when it was sorely needed to help meet financial obligations 
of the chapter. An act of such generosity is evidence of the 
great love Brother Hendricks had for his fraternity, and fit- 
tingly could provide inspiration to others to similarly express 

Presenting Special Brotherhood Award to Omega; I to r — Warren 
Schoonover, Pat Lickiss, Bob Zillgitt, and Hugh Biele 

Summer, 1972 

their devotion to Phi Sigma Kappa. John's diploma from the 
University of California is now at Omega chapter, and will 
be hung permanently in the Chapter Room there. It will 
serve as an inspiration to all Omegans, and will give testi- 
mony to how much Omega meant to one of our greatest 

Still another alum won a special mention. Brother Howard 
Smith '48 served the house extensively throughout his life. 
When he needed help the Brothers of Omega responded to 
his needs as he has responded to ours on many occasions. 
Over twenty Brothers gave blood for an operation he needed. 
It was heart breaking for us all to hear that he passed away 
a few weeks before Alumni Day. Thank you, Howard Smith, 
for all that you have done for us. 

The alumni were not the only ones sharing the spot light 
this night. Our older members and graduating seniors were 
the real recipients of a special award given to the chapter by 
the national for outstanding Brotherhood. It was their con- 
tinuous fight to preserve the Phi Sig way of life for us at 
Cal that we all appreciate. Now this duty has passed on to 
the new brothers and we hope that we can be as successful. 

Our only regret was that Chapter Consultant WAS A MAN 
could not be on hand for the presentation of this special 
national award and share in our success, for his was truly a 
unique contribution to our house. (We will keep a warm 
spot ready for him at all times — in our fireplace.)

Relaxing at Omega Founders' Day Celebration 


JJsi Pentaton Chapter at Memphis State University has 
* undergone many trials and tribulations to test the strength 
of its BROTHERHOOD. After its birth in May of 1969 
upon gaining our charter, the brotherhood of Psi Pentaton 
grew into a strong and meaningful bond. With the constant 
work on the part of the new chapter came many rewards and 
cherished principles. Growing in number, Psi Pentaton es- 
tablished the name of Phi Sigma Kappa on the University's 
campus. Along with trophies and achievements came increased 

In the Fall of 1970 Memphis State University informed the 
Brotherhood that due to the expansion of our University's 
facilities, we would be forced to move from our house at 
3706 Spotswood. This house was a symbol of our progress 
achieved thus far and held many fraternal memories. This 
came at a very critical time, since this was the period in 
which we had graduated two-thirds of our membership and 
the strength and success of our chapter depended upon a 
successful rush. Due to the multi-million dollar Fraternity 
Park being installed at Memphis State, the remaining broth- 
ers found it hard to compete with the other established fra- 
ternities on campus. After much time and searching, there 
came a short-lived reprieve from our present crisis. We moved 

Psi Pentaton Brothers in front of chapter house 

into our new home at 432 South Highland to start our re- 
building program. We hoped that our rush, combined with 
our high anticipations, would soon become the key to the 
turning-point of our future prosperity. Our newly found 
hopes were soon cut short as a "three feet in diameter oak 
tree came crashing into our house during a hail storm." Again 
Psi Pentaton faced disaster, as another rush was lost. 

This led Psi Pentaton to turning a bad situation into a 
means of setting a goal for even increased Brotherhood. We 
did this by sitting down and realistically looking at the com- 
plete picture of our status. We were faced with only two 
alternatives . . . failure as a chapter or a fight for the re- 
birth of Psi Pentaton. The answer was obvious. Too many 
hours and too many days of work in extreme sacrifice had 
gone into building our realm of Brotherhood. One year 
passed and during the Summer of 1971, several less optimis- 
tic brothers took it upon themselves to return our charter to 
the Grand Chapter without consulting the remainder of the 
Brotherhood. In the following Fall the rest of us, returning 
to school, immediately sought various routes to regain our 
charter. Upon hearing that only a slim few of the chapter 
had relinquished the charter. National took action to reinstate 
our Chapter. Our first step was to reorganize our remaining 
membership after the lack of interest shown by several former 
actives. After many weeks of meeting at various places, our 
second step was to find another house. After much considera- 
tion as to our location and its size, we obtained a new 
house at 438 South Highland on May 8, 1972. 

Presently Psi Pentaton's brotherhood consists of nine actives 
and four pledges. We have an extensive Summer Rush Pro- 
gram in progress; reorganization of our Little Sisters of the 
Triple T's; increased involvement in campus and community 
affairs; and most importantly . . . making the name of Phi 
Sigma Kappa heard at Memphis State once again!! The re- 
birth of Psi Pentaton shows that the ideals of Phi Sigma 
Kappa are not just words, but stand as a monument to our 
chapter's determination and dedication.

Alpha Deuteron Hosts 
Region IV Conclave 

Leadership Training Stressed at Conclave 

On Friday evening, April 14, the brothers of Region 
IV began to gather at the University of Illinois. 
Meals and lodging were provided at Mini Tower, a 
privately owned residence hall. 

All social functions were held at the Alpha Deute- 
ron Chapter house. The first surprise of the conclave 
for many of the brothers was the appearance of 25-30 
gals from Alpha Xi Delta Sorority who were holding 
a regional meeting on the Illinois campus the same 
weekend. A large group of the sorority sisters, out-of- 
town brothers attending the conclave and brothers of 
Alpha Deuteron were present at the House for an 
enjoyable social hour Friday evening. 

Registration on Saturday morning recorded the 
names of over 90 brothers and national officers. In 
attendance were brothers from 15 of the 18 chapters, 
5 district governors, 4 advisers, Grand President Bill 
Aaron, SIGNET Editor Bert Brown, and Executive 
Director Rick Snowdon. Bob Turner, the Region IV 
undergraduate member of the Council, also attended. 
Brother Pat Asper, Vice-President of Region IV was 
in charge of the conclave and most capably conducted 
the various sessions. 

The morning session was devoted to small group 
discussions of two of the most critical problems facing 
our chapters today — manpower (rushing) and chapter 
finances. The technique of role playing was used in 
these group discussions with national officers and ad- 
visers acting as the role players. 

The discussions on rushing seemed to generate the 
most interest. Ten stereotyped objections that must be 
overcome in successful rushing were discussed at 

It was emphasized that each of these objections 
should be discussed in all chapters prior to a rush 
session. With the answers to these objections raised by 
rushees, chapters will have a much better chance of 
pledging them. Objections must be turned into advan- 
tages to get the prospective member to sell himself on 
Phi Sigma Kappa, since obtaining good pledges is a 
question of selling yourself, your brothers, and your 
fraternity in order to convince the rushee that he 
should join. 

The session on chapter finances was held in much 
the same manner as the rushing session. The most im- 
portant thing to remember about chapter finances is 
that this is technically a business operation. There 
must be income to pay bills. Accounts receivable 
places the chapter in a grim financial position. The 
chapter treasurer must not accept all kinds of excuses 

about why members cannot pay their housebills. At a 
certain point, he must get tough. He must say "no" 
to some of the unnecessary social expenses that bro- 
thers like to have paid on various social activities. 
Prepare a workable budget and stick to it. 

At the first session of the afternoon discussion 
groups dealt with a series of six case studies, each 
attending brother receiving copies to take back to his 
chapter. Each chapter was urged to take the time to 
discuss these case studies, since many of them can 
occur in any chapter. The results of these discussions 
should create a workable solution that the brothers 
can agree on to solve similar problems in individual 

After the afternoon break and group picture taking, 
Brother Bert Brown discussed some of the proposed 
changes being suggested to shorten and " modernize" 
the Ritual. A vote of the delegates, following some 
discussion, disclosed that there was little appeal for 
some of the proposed changes. These expressions will 
be relayed to the Ritual committee by Brother Brown. 
At the conclusion of the discussion a show of hands 
on changing or leaving the Ritual in its present form 
was about even. 

Brother Snowdon reported on the Grand Chapter 
and some of the problems that have been recently 
solved at Headquarters. Some of the recent develop- 
ments included — a new Phi Sigma Kappa Operations 
Manual; the stocking of badges at Headquarters; a new 
concept for conclaves called mini-conclaves involving 
5 or 6 chapters instead of the whole region; compu- 
terization of membership records; an alumni fund 
solicitation program covering over 28,000 alums; 
availability of custom jewelry using pledge pins and 
badges; and pledge and initiation kits in complete 
packages of necessary materials and badges to be 
mailed to chapters as soon as the pledge and initia- 
tion fees respectively are received at Headquarters. 

At the short regional business meeting which follow- 
ed it was decided that, due to the shortage of funds 
and the great expense of holding a conclave, it will 
not be the policy to use conclave funds for other than 
conclave purposes at this time. The Regional Vice 
President shall determine if funds shall be used for 
other purposes. It was also felt that the region could 
make good use of the concept of mini-conclaves. Plans 
will be made to hold mini-conclaves during the fall 
and winter of the next school year — one in Ohio, 
one in Michigan, and another in such states as Wis- 
consin and Northern Illinois. 

Summer, 1972 


The Regional Conclave Banquet was a big success 
with 123 brothers, including numerous Alpha Deu- 
teron Alumni, in attendance. Grand President Bill 
Aaron gave a few remarks about the conclave. Bro- 
ther Bert Brown did his usual excellent job as an in- 
spirational speaker. His message was thought-provok- 
ing to everyone in attendance and he was greeted with 
a standing ovation when he was introduced and again 
at the close of his remarks. Following the banquet 
there was a social hour at the Alpha Deuteron House. 



Tt is safe to say that the Kappa Pentaton chapter of Phi Sigma 
Kappa, of which I am an alumnus, is far less traditional 
than the general model which our National Fraternity pre- 
sents as being that of a true fraternity. Our attitude toward 
rituals, financial agreements and national allegiance is far less 
stringent than that which most chapters appear to exhibit. 
Our house would be considered severely lacking if we were 
to be ranked alongside other chapters using these categories 
as criteria for measuring the success of a fraternity. 

My contention is that we are not lacking. Conversely, our 
chapter is extremely strong when we are judged from the 
standpoint of the degree with which we have succeeded in 
attaining the goals of a fraternity rather than from the view- 
point of how closely we match the accepted guidelines of 
our "national model." 

The guidelines given us by our National include such items 
as strict ritual observance, binding financial agreements, and 
a firm allegiance to the national fraternity. These were 
originally and are now only a general guide to the attain- 
ment of what a fraternity can be; namely, Brothers who 
together keep the house functioning socially and econom- 
ically, are good and lasting friends, feel mutual respect for 
one another, and have a true love for the ideal of Phi Sigma 
Kappa. These guidelines are important but only to the degree 
ascertained by the individual chapter which has to decide 
how closely they are applicable to their particular fraternity's 
attempts to reach the aforementioned goals. 

Our house has reached every one of these goals of a 
successful fraternity but by means which are best suited to 
our particular chapter. One example which will help to 
illustrate and prove this point is our recent Senior Banquet 
and Third Degree Ritual. Many tears were unashamedly shed 
by new and old members alike: throughout the entire evening 
brothers openly expressed true feelings of love and respect 
for one another. This is strongly indicative of the openness, 
honesty and Brotherhood that our house fosters in her mem- 
bers. The ritual by most standards was very casual in the 
manner in which it was conducted, but as one of the brothers 
who went through it, I can bear witness that all the feelings 
of friendship and love which it represents and acknowledges 
were there as strong as in any strictly conducted ritual and, 
for our particular chapter, to a far greater degree than any 
rigid ceremony would have permitted. 

What works for one chapter does not necessarily work for 
any other. I do not prescribe or suggest that other chapters 
are wrong or backward if they fail to follow our model, but 
I do feel that it is unprogressive for the National Fraternity 
to attempt to place all the chapters of the nation into one 
mold. This is to invite either a chapter's extinction or its 
alienation from the national organization. Each chapter must 
be responsive to the attitudes and needs of its particular 
school and Brothers and should act accordingly if it is to 
remain viable and continue to foster true fraternal goals.

Reginald H. Jones 

/~\n June 26, 1972, the Chairman of the Board of Directors 
^-^ of General Electric, Fred J. Borch, announced that the 
Board had elected Reginald H. Jones, Mu (Pennsylvania) '39, 
President of the company effective immediately. 

In his new position as President, Brother Jones will, among 
other duties, continue to have responsibility for the Com- 
pany's electric utility businesses: the Power Generation Group 
and the Power Delivery Group. 

Brother Jones, 55 years of age, was born in England. His 
father emigrated to the United States when Reginald was 8 
and settled his family in Trenton, N.J. Reginald graduated 
from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania 
in 1939, and began his General Electric career the same year. 
He was first named a general manager in 1953 in the com- 
pany's apparatus area and in 1956 was named to head the 
Air Conditioning Division. Two years later, he was appointed 
general manager of the General Electric Supply Company 
Division, and was elected a Vice President in 1961. When the 
Construction Industries Division was formed in January 1964, 
he was made its general manager, continuing to head both 
divisions until he was named Group Executive of the Com- 
ponents and Construction Materials Group in 1967. In May 
1968 he was named Vice President-Finance for the company. 

Brother Jones was elected a Senior Vice President on June 
1, 1970, and became a member of the Board of Directors on 
August 1, 1971. On March 1, 1972, he was elected Vice 
Chairman of the Board and a member of the Corporate 
Executive Office which is responsible for the overall manage- 
ment of the world-wide businesses of the company. 



The Death and Resurrection of Alpha Chapter 

Alpha Brothers prove it can be done) 

T-Jow do you go from a membership of over 60 Brothers to 
a membership of 26 Brothers in less than two years? It's 
not very difficult. The first thing to do is to start thinking 
that your Chapter is sitting fat, after that the rest comes 
easy . . . 
. . . Who broke the window in the Chapter room? 

I don't know. Don't worry about it. The House will 
pay for it. 
. . . Let's go to the Pub tonight and really get messed up. 
What about the stat exam tomorrow? 
The hell with it. 
. . . Bill and Ted were plastered last night and ended up in a 
fight down in the Party room. 

They did? How do you know? 
I was there. 

And you didn't break it up? 
Why should I? 
. . . Let's go back to the House, blast that juke box and go 
all night. 

But it's past three o'clock. What about the rest of the 
guys already sleeping? 
Too bad for them pussies if they can't take a joke. 
. . . Tom, you hitting the happy-hour at the Pub with the rest 
of us tonight? 

But what about the Smoker and House Meeting? 
Skip 'em. They're a waste anyway. 

You've arrived. You've made it. Your chapter is dying. 
Every brotherhood has its own problems. We had our share 
at Alpha and it took us two years to realize we had lost our 
spirit of Brotherhood, and were about to lose our Chapter 
House. Rushing was a project quite distasteful to our Chapter 
during that two year span. How do you keep an easy con- 
science when you're trying to convince someone to board 
your sinking ship? Concerned brothers had tried a number 
of different projects to aid our faltering rush program, but 
none met with much success. The enthusiasm and motivation 
were not there and therefore neither were the new pledges. 
We watched our numbers steadily dwindle and our problems 
rise proportionately. More and more people were starting 
to accept the idea that our Chapter was on its way out and 
it would only be a matter of time. Fortunately not all the 
brothers thought that way. 


A lpha brothers should hardly be the ones to give advice 
about rushing, especially after they sat back and watched 
their chapter slowly kill itself for so long. Alpha has changed 
though, and maybe some of the ideas and methods we used 
could be of some help to other chapters who find themselves 
in similar circumstances. 

The first fact we discovered about rushing is you must have 
the right attitude before you can start the right action. No 
matter what you do, or how hard you work, don't expect 
success unless you have cleaned up (or out) all the internal 
problems within the Brotherhood. A unified attitude will 
never be gained as long as there are divisions within the 

Perseverance and follow-up are the next two qualities 
mandatory for good rushing. Don't expect a stranger to 
change his entire life style on the slim basis of one visit to 
your tidy den. There is no such thing as instant success in the 
rushing game. Follow-up is the entire rush program itself; it 
can't be neglected if you expect success. 

Active Alpha Brothers and Pledges at entrance to Alpha Chapter 

The fourth thing we came to realize is that rushing cannot 
be an isolated House function. It is only one very important 
aspect of a House's activities. It must interconnect smoothly 
with all other House functions in order to be effective. This 
point brings me to our last general discovery. 

People will not become motivated if they have nothing 
concrete to be motivated towards. Overall plans and specific 
goals must be there to attract the interest of the Brothers. 
Your Chapter must know where it is and where it wants to 
go. Decide on your goals, set your plans, and then determine 
how rushing can be made to fit into this overall scheme for 

These were the general ingredients we added to our rushing 
formula. They are probably the kind you read in most rush 
pamphlets and various other rush propaganda you may have 
come in contact with. They tell you what you must do but not 
how to do it. For this reason maybe a specific look at what 
we actually did at Alpha could be of some help. 

We started by straightening out our internal problems, a 
project which would be unique for every Chapter. Next we 
decided we needed some goals; so we set up a committee at 
the end of Fall semester to discuss ideas and come up with 
some plans for Spring semester. The first project to come out 
of this committee was the need to get the House in excellent 
physical shape before we started rushing. Therefore a group 
of guys volunteered to form an intercession work crew and 
accomplish this task. 

At U. Mass. we have a group of freshmen students who 
are called Swingshifters. They start school in the summer, 
take the Fall semester off, and return to school in the Spring 
to replace those students who have left school for one reason 
or another. We decided to take the initiative with this group 
and make them our main target for Spring rush. We acquired 

Summer, 1972 


their home addresses and drew up two letters. One we sent 
to the parents, inviting them to a three-dimensional slide 
show on University life which we were planning to present. 
Also in this letter we invited them, and their sons and daugh- 
ters, to join us in our Chapter room for refreshments after 
the presentation. The second letter we sent to the Swing- 
shifters themselves, telling them of a huge welcome back 
party we had planned for the night after they returned to 
campus. We decided to use this party also to invite all other 
contacts the Brothers might have made with prospective 
rushees in previous semesters. The party was a tremendous 
success and we invited all the people there to attend a buffet 
dinner we were planning to give that coming Sunday. As 
most U.Mass students do not have weekend meal tickets 
this idea appeared very attractive to some of the Swing- 
shifters. We used the buffet to gather the names and campus 
addresses of our new contacts. With these we were able to 
start inviting small groups of guys down informally to join 
us for supper on weekday nights. These suppers gave us a 
chance to really get to meet the guys and show them around 
our House. We planned the first Smoker to follow up the 
dinner invitations, and bring all the elements of our rush 
together for the first time in what could be considered a 
specific rush function. We invited all contacts, both new and 
old, and used old House pictures, Signets, pledge books, and 
various other Phi Sig propaganda to aid us in our rushing. 
We also uncovered our secret weapon, the Phi Sigma Kappa 
Alpha Chapter Fact Sheet. Many Chapters probably already 
have these, but they were something new to us and aided 
us tremendously. The fact sheet put all the cards on the 
table, and gave the rushees something concrete to hold on to 
which they could bring back to the dorm with them. It was 
a collection of data about all aspects of our House: what the 
officers do, what National was, what pledging entailed, also 
complete financial information (with comparisons to dorm 
room & board rates). In short, our fact sheet told the whole 
story, from our bar having the only refrigerated tap system 
on campus, to the fact that we had no janitors and therefore 
had to clean up our own messes. We followed up the Smoker 
with a band party that Saturday night and offered to help all 
the rushees get dates (with girls who were known friends of 
Phi Sig, of course). Saturday night we made the rushees feel 

like a regular part of the group, because by now everyone 
was on a first name basis. We decided on bids at our next 
House Meeting and arranged a Pledge Chapel for those that 
accepted. Total length of the rush was less than three weeks. 

Most of the previously mentioned activities were specific- 
ally planned, but they in fact made up only the skeleton of 
our rush program. During the three week period we kept 
close personal touch with our contacts. We invited individuals 
down for T.V. at night, asked them to our intramural games, 
went with them to U.Mass sporting events, helped them with 
their studies, and some even came out with us to the local 
socializing spot after the Smoker. The whole idea of our rush 
was informality coupled with information and plastered with 
follow-up. These additional separate contacts with the rushees 
helped a great deal. 

In retrospect, our Swingshift rush did not work out as 
well as we would have liked in terms of men gained. Yet the 
spirit and enthusiasm it generated did not end on the night 
of that first Pledge Chapel. It was really only the beginning. 
The first few pledges were crucial for us. We tried to show 
them the vision of what they could make our House in the 
coming years. We impressed upon them the idea that our 
House was now their House. "What you make it is what 
it will be." 

Most new pledges lead a dual life: one with the Brothers, 
when they're in the House, and another one with their old 
friends back in the dorm. By generating continual rushing 
enthusiasm among those first few pledges we were able, 
through them, to reach their friends in the dorm. By connect- 
ing the pledges' dual lives we were able to start a second 
rush program almost immediately for our new contacts. 

The end result of all this work was a Brotherhood of 26 
and two pledge classes totalling 22 pledges. Spirit and com- 
petition between the Brothers and Pledges remains keen and 
has pumped an entirely new life into our Chapter. I'm con- 
vinced now, after living this experience, that any Chapter can 
have a successful rush. And this success can be gained with- 
out false faces, free beer, winning intramural teams, or a new 
House (ours was built in 1914). Attitude is everything. Once 
you establish the right attitude "the sky's the limit" as to what 
your Chapter can achieve for itself.

Omega Tet Sets World 
Frisbee Record 

'J'hirty brothers of Omega Tetarton chapter, California 
State College, (now University) at Los Angeles estab- 
lished a 240-hour world record at continuous frisbee throw- 
ing, starting at noon on March 20th and concluding around 
the clock at noon on March 30. 

The Frisbee is that popular plastic disc which performs 
aerodynamic feats when tossed by a skillful thrower. The 
existing world record for frisbee throwing was set in 1970 by 
students at Millersville (Pa.) State College who spent 220 
hours exchanging the device. Methods of tossing the frisbee 
are in compliance with rules established by the International 
Frisbee Association, the sanctioning body for frisbee tossing 

While this is not an earth-shattering fraternity accomplish- 
ment, the event gained considerable publicity for the chapter. 
Some two dozen sorority girls signed up to keep the tossers 
company during the 10-day event.

■ In some ways, column-writing is 
the freest occupation in the world. 
A columnist can pick his own sub- 
jects, develop his own style and 
belabor his chosen targets with bliss- 
ful abandon. He doesn't have to 
worry about pressure groups, irate 
stockholders or even Women's Lib. 

In other ways, however, column- 
writing is as formalized and ritualized 
as the mating dance of the whooping 
crane. The weekly effusion must al- 
ways have a maximum and a mini- 
mum length, for example. It's sup- 
posed to be original. It must be 
nontechnical and easily understood 
by the dullest reader. Above all, when 
it cites something as a fact, it had 
darned well better be one. Opinions 

in columns can be as ephemeral and 
as unsubstantial as a soap bubble; 
facts are quite another matter. 

This is why I'm charitably devoting 
my own column today to the correc- 
tion of a fellow scribe. His name is 
Sydney Harris; he wrote a recent 
screed denouncing college Greek- 
letter fraternities, and in so doing he 
was guilty of a certain terminological 
inexactitude, which is what Winston 
Churchill used to call a damned lie. 

The inexactitude referred to is Har- 
ris' following statement: "One of the 
unmourned casualties of the new col- 
lege life-style is the fraternity-sorority 
system. It is gone in most colleges, 
and almost gone in others. In my 
time, it seemed as permanent as a 
dean's pipe; now, it surely will not 
survive this decade." 

Now the only thing wrong with this 
confident comment is that it isn't true. 
After reading the projection of fra- 
ternal gloom and doom, I got the 
real dope from Jack Anson, executive 
director of the National Interfraternity 
Council. Here is sober reality as 
contrasted with Harris' apocalyptic 

1. In 1961, there were 3,547 college 
fraternity chapters located through- 
out the nation, with a total member- 
ship of 1.8 million. 

2. In 1966, there were 3,918 chap- 
ters with 2.141 million members. 

3. In 1971, there were 4,500 chap- 
ters with 2.4 million members. 

It doesn't take NASA's fourth- 
generation computers to figure that 
U.S. institutions of higher learning 
today are graced with 953 more fra- 
ternity chapters than existed 10 years 
ago, with some 600,000 more Greek- 
lettermen than they had back in 1961. 
I'm reasonably sure that even Harris 
could have figured this out, with or 
without his abacus, if he had just 
bothered to look up the figures in the 
first place. 

Harris, it appears, dislikes fraterni- 
ties, to put it mildly. This is his privi- 
lege, of course. He accuses them of 

Summer, 1972 

snobbery and of "encapsulating the 
past," whatever that is. This, too, is 
his absolute right as a columnist. 
But when he states in his column that 
fraternities are dying out when in fact 
they have just experienced a 30% 
increase in chapters and member- 
ship, he is simply undergoing a sta- 
tistical bad trip of positively stagger- 
ing and even psychedelic dimensions. 

Worse than that, he is misleading 
his innocent readers with false facts, 
and this I just cannot allow him to 
do, professional courtesy and jour- 
nalistic noblesse oblige to the con- 
trary notwithstanding. 

The most interesting and revealing 
part of Harris' reluctance to let truth 
interfere with his own private fantasy, 
wherein the Sigma Chis and the Tri 
Delts topple into the flaming pit to 
the accompaniment of Wagnerian 
crescendos on the fluegelhorn is his 
probable motivation. Whenever I 
come across an antifraternity broad- 
side of this sort, I strongly suspect 
that somewhere during his salad days 
the broadsider got burned by a turn- 
down from a Greek-letter outfit he 
itched to join as avidly as he itches 
now to see it dead and buried. 

If it's true that hell hath no fury like 
a woman scorned — and I see no rea- 
son to doubt it — it's doubly true that 
the hatred of Cain for Abel, of Cassius 
for Caesar, nay even of Jerry Rubin 
for the Barbers' Union, are as naught 
compared to the fury felt by the self- 
satisfied freshman who finds himself 
unexpectedly rejected by the chapter 
of his choice during Rush Week on 

It burns and it festers down in- 
side, doesn't it, Mr. Harris? Enough 
even to surface occasionally whole 
decades later, bristling with false 
facts and dripping with venomous 

Ah well. Fraternities are hardy 
enough to survive these little contre- 
temps, I do assure you. I knew one 
once that was hardy enough even to 
survive a whole year with me as its 
president. ■

Tom Blair 


rother Thomas A. Blair, Mu (Pennsylvania) 73 par- 
ticipated in the Olympic trials at Eugene, Ore., June 29 
to July 9 in the Pole Vault event. Tom has a best perform- 
ance in the pole vault of 17*3%" established during the in- 
door season in a triangular meet during a skein that saw him 
clear 17' on six consecutive outings. His outdoor best is 
16'9%" which he vaulted in the Heptagonal championships, 
setting both a meet and IC4A intercollegiate record. Blair is 
two-time outdoor Hep champion, three-time IC4A outdoor 
champion and the highest vaulter in Eastern history. He is 
three-time Hep indoor titlist and two-time IC4A indoor titlist 
and owns or shares the meet record in each of the indoor 
and outdoor Hep and IC4A competitions. In 1972 indoors, he 
cleared 17' or better to win the Philadelphia Track Classic, 
Washington CYO Games and Millrose Games. He was the 
King Games winner as a junior and Queens-Iona champion. 
Experimenting with new poles, Blair will hopefully reach 
the potential outdoors he indicated indoors. He was Penn 
co-captain and is from Blue Bell, Pa., and Wissahickon High 
School where he was State Prep champion. 

LATE NEWS FLASH — Tom placed fifth in the Olympic 
tryouts with a vault of 17 feet. 

Judge Robison Honored 

Brother Henry J. Robison, Beta Tetarton (Kent) 
Al., former Portage County Probate Judge, was 
honored in Columbus in June for more than 50 years 
of distinguished service to the people of Ohio. 

In his honor, Ohio Gov. John Gilligan issued a 
proclamation citing his work on behalf of the aged, 
children, the crippled, blind, mentally ill, alcoholics 
and the indigent. Judge Robison also received a 
plaque from the Mid-Ohio Planning Federation, which 
hosted the recognition luncheon. 

Judge Robison, who served as probate judge in 
Columbus for 13 years, left Ravenna in 1936 to be- 
come chief of the Ohio Welfare Department's Divi- 
sion of Social Administration under the late Gov. 
Martin L. Davey. 

Altogether he was in the welfare department 21 
years, serving as welfare director from 1953 to 1957 
after his appointment by Gov. Frank Lausche, (Pi 
Deuteron Hon.). He also served under two Republi- 
can governors, John Bricker and Tom Herbert. 

In 1957, he left to join the Columbus Hospital 
Federation which later became the Mid-Ohio. He re- 
tired June 30, but still remaains on 10 boards, includ- 
ing the Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission, an 
important state unit.

So full speed ahead! 


The Pledge Kit includes among other items the pledge 
manual. Hills and A Star, and the pledge pin. The 
cost of the entire kit will be included in the current 
pledge fee ($15.00). Chapters will no longer have to pay 
for pledge manuals and pledge pins, but each chapter 
must submit the proper forms . . . the pledge document 
and the T-5 (pledge remittance) Form prior to the mail- 
ing of the kit from Headquarters. 

In order that pledges may receive their pins at formal 
pledging, it is suggested that pins owned by actives . . . 
perhaps the respective Big Brothers, if known ... be 
used until their own pledge pins are received in the kits 
from Headquarters. 

The Initiates Kit is sent to the chapter upon receipt at 
Headquarters of the personnel card, initiation fee, and 
badge order on Form T-6. Prepayment of initiation fees 
is required in accordance with our national By-laws 
(Article 9, Section II). 

Badges, membership cards and certificates, in addition 
to other items, will constitute the initiate kit. Be sure to 
allow fifteen (15) calendar days from the date of receipt 
. . . for complete processing of the initiate kits in which 
all materials will be provided without additional cost, 
EXCEPT the badge selected by and paid for in advance 
by the initiate. This new service from Headquarters will 
be beneficial to all chapters if they will cooperate.

Hand-carved fireplace in living room of Mu Tetarton's Chapter House 
. . . imported from Europe . . . only two like it in the world 


Your Editor extends sincere apologies to SIGNET 
readers, and especially to the brothers of Mu Tetarton 
chapter for the error on Page 22 of the Spring edi- 
tion which depicted the beautiful hand-carved fireplace 
in the chapter house up-side down. It is poor consola- 
tion that the printer has acknowledged full respons- 
ibility for this mistake, since the photo appeared right 
side up in the Okayed Brown Line. 

We decided against reprinting, because that would 
have delayed delivery of the magazine too long. 

Ironically . . . and somewhat amusing . . . the cap- 
tion underneath states "only two like it in the world". 
Let's hope the other one is right side up, as shown 
correctly herewith, so that it is useable as a fireplace. 
Be charitable, Mu Tet brothers, and forgive.

Added to 

HQ's Staff 

Daniel E. Carmody, Jr. 

/"*\n August 1st, Daniel E. Carmody, Jr., Alpha (Massachu- 
setts) '72 joined the National Headquarters Staff as a 
Chapter Consultant. 

Brother Carmody's record at Alpha Chapter attests the 
fact that he has the dedication to Phi Sigma Kappa and all- 
round capability to render outstanding service to the frater- 
nity in this position. 

Twenty-one years of age, Dan graduated from St. Mary's 
High School, Lynn, Massachusetts in 1968. He entered the 
University of Massachusetts in the Fall of that year and was 
initiated into Phi Sigma Kappa in December 1969. He grad- 
uated in June 1972, receiving the degree of Bachelor of Arts 
with his major in English. His cumulative grade point aver- 
age was an excellent 3.1 on a 4.0 scale. He earned a position 
on the Dean's list five (5) times . . . once achieving a 4.0 
average for the semester. He graduated with cum laude 

His record of service to his Chapter included the offices of 
President, Rush Chairman, Scholarship Chairman, and House 
Historian, and his Interfraternity work included member- 
ship on the Greek Council and Interfraternity Council (2 
years), Greek Area Judiciary (1 year) and various commit- 
tees associated with Greek life. 

Among his extra-curricular activities were participation in 
five Intramural Sports, and Southwest Patriots (Pep and Coun- 
seling Group for Freshman). 

Dan was the recipient of one of the Phi Sigma Kappa 
Foundation Scholarship Runner-up Awards ($400) in 1969- 
70. He also earned five (5) University Scholarships, total- 
ing $1350. 

Brother Carmody will join Brothers Jim Borgan and Wes 
Mann, hold-overs from year's Staff, in servicing our Chapters 
and Colonies and in doing expansion work during the coming 
academic year. Based upon their abilities and upon the ex- 
cellent job done by Jim and Wes last year, this should give 
us an exceptionally strong corps of Chapter Consultants for 

Our chapter consultants are trained at Headquarters to 
serve our chapters wherever they may be needed. They possess 
the knowledge and expertise to give invaluable advice and 
direction in every conceivable problem which may arise in 
chapter operations. Chapters are urged to take advantage of 
their knowledge and to cooperate closely with them when 
they visit. 





August 1, 1972 
Dear Phi Sig: 

This year Phi Sigma Kappa added a new entry 
to its list of accomplishments, as we launched our 
Voluntary Alumni Support Program, an under- 
taking which will help to insure the Fraternity's 
continued progress and service to both alumni 
and undergraduates. The response to the cam- 
paign has been most encouraging and in this, 
the initial year of what promises to become a 
fine tradition, we have raised slightly over 

Our Fraternity will be an even greater one 
because of your efforts, and you can all be very 
proud— as I am— of what you have accomplished.

not now Life Subscribers with our compliments. Prior 
to the receipt of this, these Alumni will receive a 
letter from the Editor, outlining our plan for in- 
creasing our Life Subscriber list. 

Please remember we are making this special 
offer for the sole purpose of keeping as many Phi 
Sigs as possible fully informed on the fraternity 
movement in general and on the progress of Phi

for a Life Subscription . . . and thus aide us in 
reaching this goal.

How Cardinal Are 
YOUR Principles? 

Some years ago one of Phi Sigma Kappa's dedicated 
leaders addressed himself to this question in an 
article in the SIGNET. The intervening years have 
seen tremendous changes in the field of Higher Educa- 
tion and in the fraternity system which is dedicated to 
service in that field. Have these changes altered or 
intensified the value implicit in fraternity member- 

It is appropriate that we review the current role of 
so-called social fraternities in their relationship to the 
sheltering institutions which they are reputed to serve. 
While Greek-letter societies are essentially social in 
nature, it is an anachronism to assume that their pri- 
mary . . . and only . . . purpose is social enjoyment. 
They should have more meaningful and more perma- 
nent goals than continuous partying ... as delightful 
as parties may be. 

Phi Sigma Kappa, for example, strives to Promote 
Brotherhood, to Stimulate Scholarship, to Develop 
Character. These we call our Cardinal Principles, and 
by any standard, if properly implemented, these goals 
fully justify our existence on today's college campus. 
Nor do they need to detract in any sense from the 
social programs of the fraternity. They should instead 
complement these programs to the extent that they 
produce a well-rounded college man. 


Of all the numerous privileges and benefits offered 
by fraternity membership this is undoubtedly the most 
lasting and the most rewarding ... yet possibly the 
most difficult to "sell", because it is probably the most 
intangible and the hardest to define. The life-long 
intimate friendships formed as an undergraduate are 
the kind that no other type of human association can 
supply ... the kind that continue undiminished in 
the years after college. And true friends provide man 
with one of his most prized possessions. How can we 
adequately define Brotherhood? What human qualities 
does it involve? 

Let's try this on for size . . . kindness, considera- 
tion, sympathy, understanding, selflessness, generosity, 
honesty, loyalty, helpfulness, compassion. It seems to 
us these are the attributes we can expect to find in a 
true fraternity brother. 


Excellence in Scholarship is unquestionably a nat- 
ural goal of a good fraternity. It follows that it should 
be the goal of each individual member. All brothers 
cannot be "A" students, but each should be inspired 
to do nothing less than his best . . . none should ever 
be satisfied with mediocrity either in his own perfor- 
mance, or in the performance of his entire chapter. 
Motivation to this end fulfills the fraternity's role as

of the sheltering college or university. 


In these greatly troubled times, men of character 
are needed as never before in world history . . . men 
whose character can provide the type of leadership to 
make it a better world. Fraternities have proved that 
they are capable of being the catalyst for this kind of 
leadership. Character is another intangible, but it may 
well be defined as honor, integrity, morality, depend- 
ability, responsibleness, trustworthiness, uncompromis- 
ing (with right). 

How do you, Brother Phi Sig, stack up in meeting 
the criteria of our Cardinal Principles? In other words 
how cardinal are YOUR principles in meeting your 
obligations as a worthy Phi Sig? Are you satisfied with

Rotate 1R.. Barnes 

Tt is with deepest sorrow that The SIGNET announces 

the death of Brother Dean Terrill, Beta Triton (Knox) 

Brother Terrill, 67 years of age, was found dead in his 
Chicago apartment on May 3rd, 1972 by his secretary when 
she reported for work on that day. 

For nearly 20 years Dean has been extremely active in the 
work of the Phi Sigma Kappa Foundation. He was elected 
Trustee of the Foundation on December 11, 1953, and was 
appointed Director of Scholarships on December 17, 1954. 
His dedication to this arm of the Fraternity was exemplified 
not only by his generous financial contributions to the Foun- 
dation, but by his uninterrupted service during the years that 
followed until his death in the area of the Foundation Awards 
Program. He was an ardent believer in the purposes of the 
Foundation, serving for many years as one of the panel of 
judges for the Scholarship competition in that program. He 
was especially interested in the establishment of Chapter 
House libraries. During his life-time, he contributed over 
$9,000 to the Foundation Fund. 

Dean was a past Director of the Foundation for Foreign 
Affairs Inc. in Chicago. He was a former Vice-President and 
Counsel for the Kerr McGee Corp. of Oklahoma City, Okla- 
homa, and was serving as a Board member for that firm and 
as special counsel on a semi-retired basis at the time of his 
death. He began private law practice in Chicago in 1952, and 
was also an investment counselor. 

Brother Terrill will be sorely missed by Phi Sigma Kappa 
which owes him a deep debt of gratitude for his many years 
of service, especially in the area of Scholarship improvement.

/""\ne of Phi Sigma Kappa's most dedicated Alumni, Brother 
^^ Oscar C. Parkinson, Omega (California) '15, died at 
Palm Springs Cal. on Wednesday, June 28, 1972 . . . 
stricken with leukemia, reportedly with practically no warn- 
ing. He was buried at Parkview Cemetery in Stockland, Cal. 
Brother Parkinson was one of the prime movers in the estab- 
lishment of our Phi Tetarton chapter at the University of 
the Pacific. 


r E REGRET TO announce that Brother Horace R. Barnes, 

Mu (Pennsylvania) '11, Grand President of the fraternity 
1930-32, passed away on July 14th at Neffesville, Pa. where 
he had been ill for some time. He was 85 years of age. 

Brother Barnes was a 1911 graduate of the Univ. of Pa. 
and received his MA. from the Wharton School of Business 
of the University in 1913. After serving in the post of Bursar 
at Penn for eight years, he moved to Lancaster, Pa. in 1921 
to initiate the department of Economics and Business Edu- 
cation at Franklin and Marshall College. 

After his retirement as head of that department in 1952, he 
and the late Dr. H.M.J. Klein served as coordinators of 
Americans for the Competitive Enterprise System. 

He was the organizer of Pi Gamma Mu, a social science 
fraternity. He also was the secretary of the Franklin and 
Marshall Board of Trustees for 17 years, a member of the 
Lancaster Historical Society, Lodge 43 Free and Accepted 
Masons, and the First Presbyterian Church of Lancaster. 

In addition to his widow, Laura M. Hibberd Barnes, he is 
survived by a daughter, E. Jean Barnes, and a son, H. Richard 
Barnes Jr., and two grand-children.

FALL 1972 

The President's Message 

GREETINGS, Brothers and Pledges— If it is true, as many contend, that "a good 
reputation is our most important asset" . . . and I certainly concur that it is 
. . . let us see if we cannot agree on what constitutes a good reputation in the 
college community. With no aspersion upon social programs per se, a good 
reputation will surely be dependent upon more than a continual round of 
parties, beer busts, etc. To boil it down to specifics, it seems to me that what we 
are really talking about can be covered in three general terms— involvement, 
responsibility, and scholastic achievement. 

No chapter can succeed in establishing a good reputation, if its members 
fail to become involved in campus affairs . . . in extra-curricular activities . . . 
in the area of campus leadership. Such involvement, however, must be positive 
and not negative, if it is to enhance the image of the fraternity. A posture of 
campus leadership cannot be achieved, unless all of the brothers unite in a seri- 
ous effort to participate in campus activities. 

If the fruits of involvement are to be realized, the chapter members must 
accept RESPONSIBILITY, that is non-transferable and cannot be taken lightly. It 
is essential that each be responsible for his personal conduct . . . not only in his 
dealings with chapter brothers, but in his association with the entire college 
community. Special attention must be given to maintaining adequate manpower. 
It's not enough to say— or even think— "we're satisfied just to replace those mem- 
bers who have been lost through graduation." Bear in mind that manpower 
is your chapter's life-blood. 

Finally, your success in building a good reputation will be largely depend- 
ent upon high scholastic achievement . . . each brother giving his best efforts 
to promote academic excellence. This will do more to assure a good reputation 
with the college administration than any other single activity. 

It is my hope that in this, our Centennial Year, EVERY Phi Sig chapter and 
colony will do its utmost to establish a reputation on its campus that we can 
proudly point to as GOOD. You can do it— it's up to you.

Theta Pentaton 
Meets Challenge 

By Fred Nesbitt, Theta Pentaton '65 
Vice-President for Region II 

Theta Pentaton's Chapter House at Indiana 
University of Pennsylvania has just undergone a 
major renovation due to the joint effort of the alumni 
corporation and the undergraduate Brothers. Being a 
relatively young Chapter (1965), it is surprising how 
it was able to obtain housing in 1968 (purchased by 
the Alumni) and a $7,800 renovation during the 1972 
school year. The secret to the success is a well organ- 
ized alumni group and cooperation between the gradu- 
ates and undergraduates. 

After the induction of the chapter in 1965, the four- 
teen Alumni decided that they wanted to fully support 
the newly founded Chapter. Therefore, in 1966, the 
Alumni organized the Theta Pentaton Foundation as a 
non-profit corporation, chartered in the Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania. They had two goals: to de- 
velop a scholarship awards program to recognize out- 
standing undergrad members; and to provide the 
capital base to purchase a fraternity house. Having 
started out in the commuter lounge of a dormitory, 
then moving to a rented house about 8 blocks from 
the campus, and then into another rented house close 
but still inadequate, the Alumni hoped soon to be able 
to realize the second goal. 

With the support of some dedicated Alums, the 
scholarship program got underway immediately. In 
October, 1966, the first scholarship award was pre- 
sented at the Homecoming dinner-dance. The award 
consisted of a letter of commendation plus a small 
cash award. While the money awards were small, the 
plans called for gradually increasing them with the 
addition of more Alums. This has been accomplished 
successfully up to today. The Alumni have pledged 
$400 a year to Scholarship Awards. In 1972, through 
the generosity of the Phi Sigma Kappa Foundation, 
Matching Scholarship funds in the amount of $400 
were obtained, meaning that in 1972-73, the Scholar- 
ship Awards will total $800. This is a long way from 
a beginning of $50! 

The second goal was realized in 1968 when the 
alumni corporation was able to purchase a house at 
228 South Seventh Street in Indiana. While it was a 
private home, it was most suitable for fraternity living 
with some minor adjustments. The question in 1968 
was, "How could the Alumni possibly finance the pur- 
chase of a $37,000 house which required $5,000 in 
furniture and $4,500 in renovation in order to comply 
with zoning?" The answer wasn't simple. 

Before even tackling the question of money, the 
Alumni and undergrad Brothers formed a housing 

Theta Pentaton House before renovation 

committee to proceed with the details. The first battle 
was zoning — getting two city blocks rezoned, getting 
city council approval, and getting a special use permit. 
This task took petitions, zoning hearings, council 
hearings, and much leg work. Not having enough 
money to hire an attorney, the responsibility fell upon 
the Brothers. 

At the same time, the problem of finances arose. 
"Who would loan a newly organized alumni corpora- 
tion $46,500 — a corporation that had no assets!" The 
money was raised from four sources: the owner agreed 
to a second mortgage of $6000; the Foundation sold 
promissory notes to Brothers and parents for a five year 
period; the bank agreed to loan an amount of money 
equivalent to 70% of the appraised value; and the 
National Fraternity agreed to underwrite an addi- 
tional $14,000 by placing security deposits in the local 

Without the help of the National Fraternity, the goal 
would have fallen $14,000 short of the needed money. 
At that point, the Brothers realized one of the many 
advantages to belonging to a National Fraternity. 

As September 1st came upon the Chapter, it 
didn't look too good. The Alumni had cleared all the 

Theta Pentaton House after renovation 


Theta Pentaton's renovated Recreation Roo 

hurdles except one — the last zoning obstacle. Twenty- 
six men had committed themselves to live in the house 
— a house which was not yet ours. Finally, on Sep- 
tember 5th, the last hearing was held, the permit was 
approved and the Phi Sigs began moving into their 
new house. The drive for the house had taken a total 
11 months actual work and two years of planning, but 
it was well worth all the work. 

After three years in the house, it was decided by the 
House Operating Committee that major renovation 
had to be completed on the outside of the house. They 
approved an expenditure of $7,800 for that purpose. 

An additional loan was secured from the bank and 
the holders of the first promissory notes agreed to 
renew for another five years. Again, National assist- 
ance was needed and forthcoming. 

The 1968 venture into housing has been a success 
for Theta Pentaton. The basement has been completely 
remodeled; the outside renovation is finished except for 
landscaping; and an inside remodeling program is now 
on the drawing boards. Much of the success of the 
house can be attributed to the House Operating Com- 
mittee (HOC) that actually runs the house and over- 
sees the budget and all financial affairs. The committee 
consists of eight members — four alumni Brothers and 
four undergraduate Brothers. All decisions rest with 
this committee, including the most serious financial 

At Theta Pentaton, housing and scholarship have 
been and continue to be a "team effort." The team 
consists of Alumni who are interested in perpetuating 
their home chapter and the undergraduates who are 
interested in building a strong, active chapter. The 
"Bonds of Brotherhood" at Theta Pentaton do not 
break upon the graduation of a man, but continue as 
a life-long commitment to the Three Cardinal Princi- 
ples. A Phi Sig team can do anything — just try it and

Grading Professors— 
Turn About May Be Fair Play 

By Dr. James E. Sefton, Xi P (Fac.) 

Former Chapter Adviser and Associate Professor of History 

at San Fernando Valley State College 

The idea of students formally evaluating their pro- 
fessors has been around for a long time, and is 
becoming increasingly popular. Often it goes hand in 
hand with the desire for curricular reforms and ex- 
panded student influence in academic policy. Should 
students evaluate professors? The answer is "yes", 
with some qualifications. 

The basic purpose of the evaluation should deter- 
mine other aspects of it. Evaluations may be purely 
for the informed reflection of the professor. Or they 
may be part of unofficial student publications to assist 
in the choice of classes. Finally they may be quite 
formal and used by the college in the retention and 
promotion process. The greater the official use made 
of such evaluations, the more care must be taken in 
their construction and administration. Questions asked 
must be ones which students can validly answer, and 
reasonable principles of statistical interpretation must 
not be ignored. 

Too often, especially on forms devised by student 
government committees, questions are misleading, lack 
probative value, or cannot be answered without refer- 
ence to complicated standards or definitions which are 
seldom agreed upon. "Does he keep his office hours?" 
"Are his lectures clear and easy to follow?" "Does he 
permit the expression of views opposed to his own?" — 
these are questions worth asking, because they are 
ones which help to paint a picture of the professor by 
inquiring in areas where the student likely has evidence 
on which to base an answer. But questions like "Is he 
a hard grader?" "Was the course relevant to your 
educational goals?" are useless because of uncontrol- 
lable variations in the standards by which they will be 
answered. Unfortunately, questions of the latter type 
are popular because of the mistaken assumption that 
statistical answers to such questions prove something 
about professorial quality. 

Questions concerning fairness in grading also pre- 
sent difficult problems of control. Aside from the 
obvious problem of what constitutes "fairness," there 
is the need to ensure that the evaluations are not 
influenced by pleasure or dismay over final course 
grades. Evaluations done during the final exam suffer 
from the additional difficulties raised by inherent 
traumas of that day. If a professor gives grades because 
of some racial, religious, or political bias, that is worth 

knowing, but the quantified intuition found on evalu- 
ation forms is usually a far cry from the evidence 
needed to support action. 

A major cause of difficulty with evaluating profes- 
sors is the lack of agreement on what constitutes "good 
teaching." Administrators are reluctant to spell out 
detailed criteria, and faculty have their own widely 
divergent views. If students evaluate professors accord- 
ing to their individual standards, statistical controls 
are greatly weakened and the results will prove noth- 
ing. Statistical problems are also increased by the 
necessity of asking different questions in different cases. 
Unless questions are framed very generally (which will 
reduce the amount of useful data on specific points) 
the same survey form will not be equally applicable 
in History, Physical Education, and Chemistry. Even 
within one department, there may be employed so 
many different teaching methods that a uniform set of 
questions will be hard to construct. 

The professor who devises a specialized form of his 
own information is probably benefitting the most by 
student evaluation. He can measure his teaching 
against his own goals and he can ascertain how his 
students perceive him in terms of the criteria he be- 
lieves a good teacher should fulfill. I have used such 
forms for ten years; they have helped me, though I 
doubt they would "prove" anything to anyone else. 
Which brings us back to matters of purpose. If the 
intention is to compile and publish an opinion profile, 
for whatever interest that may be to other students, a 
carefully devised and administered rating system is 
not a bad idea, as long as it is not expected to do more 
than it can do. But when the intention is to amass 
evidence for the purpose of influencing the college's 
personnel decisions, student opinionaires are usually 
more mercurial than reliable. 

It would be good to have a foolproof, informative 
system of judging the quality of teaching, since that 
is the most important function of colleges. The "grape- 
vine," sometimes fruitful, often produces only clusters 
of hearsay. Supper table talk in the chapter house at 
least allows probing for reasons. Published polls have 
the advantages of sampling a wider slice of opinion, but 
their presumed "scientific objectivity" is too often lack- 
ing. Unfortunately, no system has yet been devised 
which ensures that turn about is always fair play. 



An Interview 

Signet Editor Herbert L. Brown, Phi '16 interviews past National President Alvin 
S. Rudisill, Rho Deuteron '50 on the present and future of college fraternities. Broth- 
er Rudisill is currently Chaplain and Associate Professor of the School of Religion at 
the University of Southern California. He is also Chairman of a Commission at that 
University which recently completed an intensive study of the fraternity system. 

Dr. Alvin S. Rudisill 

Q. Brother Rudisill, do you think that the college fra- 
ternity has lost its usefulness as an indispensable adjunct 
to higher education? 

A. My response would be absolutely not and for the same 
reasons that we fraternity men have always held to be basic 
to our understanding of the uniqueness of fraternity. Namely, 
the opportunity that we offer for small group living is still 
a critical reason for appealing to college students today. In- 
deed the move out of college dormitories and to apart- 
ments and communes and cooperatives and the like in the 
last 10 years indicates, I think, disenchantment of the college 
students with mass housing and his desire to be a part of a 
smaller group living situation. 

Secondly, I think we can be a critical and relevant part of 
higher education, especially because we have traditionally 
trained leaders implicit in the entire organization of the local 
chapter, supported by the alumni and the national organiza- 
tion, which offers the opportunity for the significant develop- 
ment and cultivation of leadership skills. I think the record 
of Greeks over the years on our local campuses and sub- 
sequently, as alumni, and then as outstanding citizens in the 
community proves this to be true. 

Thirdly, it seems to me that the fraternity experience is 
still an indispensable adjunct to higher education, because 
we provide within the framework of our small group living 
situation the opportunity for the community culture, if you 
will, with our emphasis on the development of character, our 
emphasis on the pursuit of scholarship, our concern for the 
development of the entire student. His full potential is one 
of the unique aspects of the fraternity experience. 

Finally, it seems to me that one of the most unique things 
about the kind of opportunity that a local fraternity or 
sorority chapter affords university students is the opportunity 
for community service. Fraternity men have traditionally 
been leaders in campus service projects, and increasingly over 
the last 10 or 15 years in community service projects. This 
speaks directly to the forthright idealism of college students, 
as we have experienced in recent years, and indeed is one of 
the most unique things about the fraternity experience. The 
point, you see, is that this is set in the context of the total 
life of the student. His community service involvement through 
his fraternity is not just something he does as a club activity, 
but he does it with people who share similar ideals and have 
a personal commitment to him and who join together to go 
out to improve the community around him. Phi Sigs know me 
as an extremely idealistic kind of person. Hence, I would 
just say in summary that in response to this question, I still 
see the validity of the college fraternity serving the critical 
function of the home away from home. We use that line in 
our Rush programs traditionally and it seems to me that it 
is still most relevant to the experience of most college stu- 
dents todav. 

Q. Is the fraternity of today meeting its responsibilities 
as successfully as it did in your undergraduate days? 

A. I would have to say "yes" and "no". To the extent that 
their local chapters conduct rush programs, and pledge edu- 
cation programs and their community service activities and 
the like — yes, they are meeting their responsibility. In an- 
other much more profound sense though, I would have to say 
"no" they are not . . . for several reasons. I don't see that 
fraternities on most campuses are responding to change with- 
in the university and within the surrounding community as 
forthrightly as I personally would like. 

Secondly, it seems to me that they are not as involved as 
we were immediately following World War II. Admittedly, 
I was part of a very active fraternity system at Gettysburg, 
where fraternity men dominated the life of the campus and 
that is not true of many of our universities today where the 
Greek system constitutes a very small minority of our student 
body and that makes a great difference. But, it seems to me, 
fraternity men are just not as involved in the total life of 
the institution in the way we were in past decades. There is 
something else that bothers me — it's true here at the Univer- 
sity, of Southern California and I think it's true on too many 
of our campuses today. That is, I don't see the kind of cooper- 
ation, interfraternally. that I experienced when I was an 

Finally, I would like to say — and this is a very intangible 
idea — that I don't see the esprit de corps, for lack of a bet- 
ter term, within individual houses, indeed within the total 
fraternity and sorority systems. When I was a college under- 
graduate, there was excitement about being a fraternity man; 
there was pride being involved in your house and in your 
fraternity. We wore our pins proudly; we wore our blazers 
proudly, even though as part of the college generation in the 
1950's, we were labeled conformists and were told by people 
who analyzed us that we lacked imagination. I guess what I 
am trying to say is that in terms of the individual members, 
allegiance to the Greek concept I find to be very unstruc- 
tured. I find it to be very casual, and I think that these are 
some of the things that prompt one or two year membership 
before a man in his Junior year moves out of his house and 
becomes inactive. So. I'd say — "yes" and "no". 

Q. What in your opinion can today's fraternity do to 
make membership more attractive to the incoming stu- 

A. My answer would be that it depends on the individual 
campus. It seems to me that in terms of my experience of the 
last 10 or 15 years, visiting I suppose over 100 college and 
university campuses, I would say that on the smaller, more 
isolated campus, the fraternity chapter still appeals to the 
incoming student pre-eminently as an attractive place to live 

Fall, 1972 

and as a center for his social life. I think that is a much dif- 
ferent kind of situation than the major urban university 
fraternity finds itself in, where the pluralism of campus life 
and the sophistication of the entering student present a much 
different picture. There I would have to respond that we can 
be more attractive to the entering student only to the extent 
that our behavior becomes less adolescent, and by that I mean 
very candidly there is far too much hazing and far too many 
practices of that kind within the fraternity system that are 
degrading and self defeating. 

Secondly, it seems to me that we fraternity men really need 
to be more candid with the entering student about our 
strengths and weaknesses, the kind of obligations, both finan- 
cially and otherwise, that a student assumes when he becomes 
a member of our organization. 

Thirdly, I think we need to be less rigid in a lot of the 
things that we do as fraternity people. I think that we are 
tending, very frankly, to perpetrate a style of life and a style 
of chapter life that reflects more of the 1930's than it does of 
the 1970's. 

Fourthly, I think I'd say we need to be more responsive 
to the very pluralism of the university situation that I alluded 
to a moment ago. We have to be able to say to the entering 
Freshman, this can be a rich experience for you. Alright, how 
does that concur? Let me cite one example. Most large col- 
leges and universities have a significant international student 
population. Here at U.S.C. we have 1,500 international stu- 
dents from something like 95 countries. That is not unusual. 
It seems to me that we are missing a golden opportunity, if 
we don't offer the freshman the opportunity to live in our 
house with a resident international guest who may be with us 
a semester or a year. In this way, we can say to the Fresh- 
man, "Here is something you will experience within our fra- 
ternity, within our organization, something that you will not 
encounter elsewhere on campus". 

Finally, I guess at the risk of just speaking grandeous over- 
simplification, I would have to say that we would be more 
attractive to the incoming student only to the extent that what 
we represent within our organization appears to him to be 
relevant to his personal educational goals, to his aspiration as 
a young man, and to the kinds of things he hopes for in the 

Q. How can fraternities improve their service to the 
sheltering institution? 

A. I would point to three critical areas, two of which we 
traditionally have done; the third we have only begun to ex- 
plore within the last two years. The first would be leadership 
training. Any institution as complex as a major university 
today is dependent upon its constituencies. Increasingly, the 
activism of students in the last five years has resulted in 
students being given an opportunity to share in the govern- 
ment of the university, membership on the Board of Trustees; 
to serve on university committees, and task forces and com- 
missions; to significantly be involved at the departmental and 
school level including the selection of curricula departmental 
academic standards. Now this is exciting, and it seems to me 
that here is a golden opportunity for college students to be 
significantly involved as campus leaders. Now consistent with 
everything I've been saying, I would want to argue that fra- 
ternities and sororities are uniquely structured organiza- 
tionally to provide this kind of leadership training, this kind 
of skill development, which the institution so urgently needs 

Secondly, it seems to me that we are in a unique partner- 
ship with our host college or university in terms of the kind 
of campus service we provide in a hundred different ways and 
hopefully, the kind of significant community service we pro- 

Now, the third point I would want to make is the area that 

we are really just beginning to explore. I think it is still the 
most exciting challenge that confronts fraternities in the 
1970's; that is the extent to which our individual chapters 
indeed can become part of the ongoing academic process of 
the university. There have been a number of experiments in 
this area. I would point, for example, to the chapters who have 
invited a young faculty member to be a resident tutor, a res- 
ident scholar in their house. I would point to the chapters 
who have regular speaker programs, culture presentations 
regularly throughout the college year. I would point to the 
chapters who have been able to actually schedule seminars in 
their houses in cooperation with other houses. It seems to me 
that we have the kind of community which in effect becomes 
a miniature college, if you will, and which offers perhaps the 
most exciting justification for our existence today of any 
single thing we have to offer. 

Q. Do you feel that fraternities are taking full advantage 
of their opportunities to justify their existence on the 
college campus? 

A. I think two charges can be leveled at fraternities. The 
one is that we have tended to be a little bit isolationist. We 
have tended to see ourselves not really in the main stream 
of university life, but indeed on too many campuses as a 
kind of escape from it. 

Secondly, whether we like it or not, we have to confess to a 
certain degree of elitism on most of our campuses. Now this 
is partly a result of our isolationistic practice to the degree 
that it's partly the process of membership selection, it's partly 
the mystery of our Greek name and our esoteric practices and 
the like. On some campuses, tragically enough, it reflects dis- 
crimination in membership selection. But I think on too many 
of our campuses today, we are sometimes seen as an elitist 
organization. On the other side of the coin, I would be remiss 
if I didn't say we haven't taken full advantage of our oppor- 
tunities, because I think we have not really exploited the 
opportunity to sell ourselves to the campus. We have tended 
to retreat behind the protection of our individual houses, and 
have not presented ourselves in the best possible light. I don't 
really know how to illustrate that except perhaps to say 
wherever I travel on campuses I generally hear complaints 
about the fact that fraternity men feel that the campus news- 
paper gives them very little coverage and many times is quite 
critical or even hostile towards fraternity people. I have been 
terribly impressed with the colleges and universities where 
the Greek system through I.F.C. and the Panhellenic has 
published their own newspaper and have used this as a device 
to present themselves to the entire university community. I 
have been impressed with individual chapters and interfra- 
ternity councils that have really cultivated the local news 
media, T.V.. radio, and newspapers to their advantage and 
have made themselves very visible and have presented to the 
community their best assets and their most attractive virtues, 
the good kinds of constructive things that they are doing and 
that's exciting. 

Q. Is the fraternity experience relevant to the aims and 
purposes of today's college and university? 

A. Everything that I have said in this interview would in- 
dicate that I must say "yes, the fraternity experience is rele- 
vant to higher education today". Obviously, I am also indicat- 
ing that many of our practices, many of the things that we do 
in our life as fraternities, is not relevant and indeed too many 
faculty and too many university administrators see the fra- 
ternity experience as being antithetical to the aims and pur- 
poses of higher education and that's tragic and unnecessary 
in my judgement. Responsible fraternity- leaders all over the 
country are in agreement on this point.

Fall, 1972 




'T'he last few years have seen a rash of predic- 
A tions by pragmatic prophets of doom that the 
college fraternity is about to breathe its last and that 
soon the requiem will be sung. What utter nonsense! 
These self-anointed experts (?) have gazed into their 
crystal balls and true to their philosophy of hatred for 
anything that resembles tradition, they gleefully an- 
nounce to those fraternity critics, who (they think) 
are waiting with bated breath, that the Greek system 
is no longer relevant to higher education in this Age of 

But let's look at the record for just a moment and 
see how the predictions of these soothsayers square 
with well-documented facts. 

The Fraternity System — composed of the men's 
general fraternities — consists of approximately 4,500 
chapters of 61 general fraternities located at over 600 
campuses in the United States and Canada with a total 
living membership in excess of 2.4 million. 

The National Interfraternity Conference is com- 
posed of 50 member fraternities, with about 3,400 

Although average chapter size decreased during the 
period from 1968 to 1971, and although statistics are 
not complete for the 1971-1972 school year, there is 
evidence to indicate that fraternity membership is on 
the upswing and that average chapter size is increas- 

Fraternities have continued to grow in numbers of 
chapters. Here are the statistics based on the NIC 
Annual Census. 


Active Chapters 

Living Members 








































There are 3,000 fraternity houses owned by the 
fraternities in the system. A conservative estimate 
of the value of the chapter houses is $300 million. It 
is estimated that fraternity chapters pay in excess of 
$6 million in property taxes each year. 

The Greek Letter System — including fraternities, 
sororities, professional fraternities and sororities, rec- 
ognition societies and honor societies — consists of 
more than 20,000 chapters. 

No responsible fraternity leader will deny that there 
has been some chapter roll attritution in the last few 
years, albeit much of this reduction in chapter strength 
has been offset by the addition of new chapters. It is 
also true that there has been some decline in member- 
ship (new initiates) in individual chapters. Yet there 
is strong evidence that during the last year we have 
"turned the corner" and can expect improvement in 
this area during this academic year. It is too early to 
judge whether this presages a return to normalcy. 

Like other national fraternities, Phi Sigma Kappa 
deplores the loss of chapters, but is compelled to follow 
a policy of dropping those chapters which have ceased 
to make a positive contribution to the campus life of 
the sheltering institution and have become, through 
faulty operation, a definite liability to the national 
fraternity. Such a drastic step, however, is taken only 
after every possible effort is exhausted to remedy the 

Our critics' chief stock in trade is the charge that 
fraternities have not changed with the changing cam- 
pus life. Apparently they are not aware of the many 
important changes in the fraternity world, that have 
occurred in recent years . . . that discrimination in 
membership selection has almost disappeared; that the 
old boog-a-boo of hazing has been eliminated in most 
Greek-letter orders, with Help Week displacing the 
traditional Hell Week; that fraternity scholarship has 
shown a decided upswing, thus negating the charge of 
anti-intellectualism; that diversity in membership has 
laid to rest the old charge of conformity; that better 
business management has resulted in more chapters 
being financially sound. 

It is true that fraternities are not yet without fault. 
There are too many chapters that attach primary 
importance to the wrong things . . . overlooking the 
need for setting up priorities. Heavy drinking and pot- 
parties enjoy far too high a priority. But even the most 
vicious critic has to admit that these are not evils, on 
which fraternity men hold a monopoly. 

The one great value in fraternity membership, about 
which these false prophets are singularly silent, is 
Brotherhood — that intangible but very real and very 
precious heritage which provides the fraternity man 
with the opportunity to develop close companionships 
and life-long friendships — the kind that no other asso- 
ciation can offer. Time cannot efface nor distance 
weaken this bond that unites these men as Brothers. 

No, fraternities are NOT dying — nor will they die 
as long as there is a need for Brotherhood of the frater- 
nity variety, as there surely is today. When you hear 
these dire predictions, be sure you consider the sources 
and evaluate them on the basis of their knowledge of 
the situation ... or lack of it.

or otherwise. 



Pioneering in Career Selection 
ivith Lendman Associates 

Only by taking important steps in the area of professional 
service to our membership can we of PHI SIGMA 
KAPPA maintain our reputation as an innovative leader 
among fraternal organizations. Fraternities have long neglect- 
ed their membership in the area of employment assistance. 
Since finding the right career is a major concern of all young 
professionals, we have established a working relationship with 
Lendman Associates, the nation's foremost job search firm 
for junior executives. Since 1967, Lendman has been nationally 
recognized as the leading organization in the job placement 
of junior military officers and other young professionals seek- 
ing employment at or near the entry level. The firm developed 
a revolutionary concept for bringing job candidates into con- 
tact with large and small business and industrial organizations. 
The Lendman Career Weekend is a well-planned meeting 
which permits approximately 200 college degreed job candi- 
dates to hear representatives of twenty participating firms 
describe their job opportunities. Between five and six programs 
are held monthly in luxury hotels located in principal cities 

After listening to the jobs available, the prospective em- 
ployees schedule interviews with those firms of greatest inter- 
est. Thirty-minute interviews take place on Saturday and 
Sunday in the company representatives' hotel rooms. Those 
applicants who travel in from another geographic area receive 
special reduced room rates from the hotel. 

Career Weekends, which are held in almost all major cities 
in the country, host a variety of companies from large indus- 
trial giants like Ford, General Electric and Westinghouse to 
smaller firms whose names are not so familiar. Since all of 
Lendman's services are paid for entirely by American indus- 
try, there is no cost to the job applicant. 

In addition to the company exposure which applicants re- 
ceive throughout a Career Weekend, they also benefit from 
a variety of helpful seminars, panel discussions and direction 
from special Career Weekend participants. The Career Week- 
end has, for example, been selected as an official recruiting 
source by The Harvard Graduate School of Business, and as 
a result, this prestigious educational institution is on hand 
at certain Weekends not only to recruit students but to pro- 
vide advice to those who are considering attending gradu- 
ate school. 

After careful review of the Lendman organization, it was 
the unanimous decision of the PHI SIGMA KAPPA Council 
to make Career Weekends available to all members who qual- 
ify. In order to become a Lendman applicant, candidates must 
have a minimum of a four year college degree and from one 
to five years of business or military experience. Lendman is 
not able to accept recent Bachelor level graduates if they do 
not possess at least one year of full-time work experience; 
however. Masters level candidates are eligible even though 
they lack industrial experience. 

For further information about Career Weekends, you may 
contact Stephen M. Campbell at the Corporate Headquarters 
of Lendman Associates at P. O. Box 14027, Norfolk, Virginia 
23518 or by calling collect (703) 583-5921. Advise Lendman 
that you are a member of PHI SIGMA KAPPA when you 
contact their office. 

When fraternity men go off half-cocked and shout 
"Why National?" They would do well to rerieir the many 
services which national fraternities render their members 
and their chapters. The list is really quite impressive.

Two Epsilon Triton 

Alumni Honored At 

American University 

Dick Taylor in his heydey — B.H 
(before hair) 

Two prominent alumni of Epsilon Triton were 
inducted into American University's Athletic Hall 
of Fame last May 10th. 

Brother Richard N. Taylor, '51, was star pitcher 
on A.U.'s Baseball team from 1948 through 1951. 
During those 4 years, he compiled an enviable record 
of 19 wins and 8 losses — more wins than any other 
University pitcher there before him or since. When 
American won the Mason-Dixon title in 1949, Dick 
started or relieved in 12 of 15 games, pitching two 
championship victories and both ends of a double 
header. He was the winning pitcher in both games of 
the Mason-Dixon playoffs. Currently, Dick coaches 
one of the boys' baseball teams at Our Lady of Victory 

Dick was for a number of years a most capable 
chapter adviser at Epsilon Triton and continues to 
display a vital interest in the chapter. 

Brother John D. Briggs, '50, was Captain of the 
Swimming team at American University and was un- 
beaten in the backstroke for 4 years. He held pool 
and conference records in the back stroke and individ- 
ual medley. He was D.C. AAU backstroke champion 
and four time Mason-Dixon champion.

atitiieon CLCiilfaur Ban; 

Brother Wilbur "Webbie" Barr, Epsilon Deuteron (Wor- 
cester) '22, died June 28, 1972, at Memorial Hospital, Wor- 
cester, Mass., after a short illness. Born in Worcester, Sep- 
tember 30, 1900, he was educated in the Worcester Public 
Schools before entering Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 
1918. In 1922 he became proprietor of The Park Press when 
his father was forced to retire due to illness; in 1936 he 
became a partner of the King-Barr Press. After the death of 
his partner in 1953, Brother Barr joined the Davis Press, Inc., 
where he remained until his retirement in 1967. 

While at W. P. I., "Webbie" was an important driving 
force behind Epsilon Deuteron Chapter functions, as well as 
a major participant in School musical and dramatic activities. 
His absence will be felt by his brothers mostly due to the fact 
that he was such an excellent Treasurer of Kappa Xi Alpha 
(Epsilon Deuteron's Alumni Association) for so many years. 

At the time of his death. Brother Barr was an active mem- 
ber of the Advertising Club, Civitan Club, Master Printer's 
and Craftsmen's Club in Worcester, as well as participating 
in the Grotto Band. He was a Mason, and a member of the 
Greendale People's Church. 

&ttl)ut Catling TEomt 

Brother Arthur Carling Toner, Jr., Mu (Pennsylvania) 
'30, well-known Pittsburgh sports figure, national and inter- 
national AAU official and former executive of Pittsburgh 
Plate Glass Co., died on July 12th at the Presbyterian- 
University in that city. He had undergone abdominal surgery 
in May. 

Born in Baltimore, Brother Toner was the last surviving 
descendant of the Carling family which was among the settlers 
who founded the city in the 17th century. He attended and 
graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with honors 
and a degree in civil engineering. He served as President of 
the Mu Alumni Association, and of the University's Alumni 
Association, serving one term as President. 

He had given much of his time and funds to help young- 
sters in sports and had been very active in the national Ama- 
teur Athletic Union and the regional Allegheny Mountain 
Association — AAU. He was also an alternate member of the 
U.S. Olympic Committee of which Mrs. Toner was a regular 
member. He was on the Board of Directors of the Pittsburgh 
Athletic Association. 

WUaltn C. BranbcS 

Brother Walter C. Brandes, Epsilon (Yale) '14, passed 
away at the Masonic and Eastern Star Home in Washington, 
D.C., on August 4, 1972, at the age of 82. 

Walter was for many years one of Phi Sigma Kappa's most 
dedicated Alumni. He was a member of the Grand Council 
during a number of years following his graduation, serving 
in the capacity of Auditor (council status at that time). He 
will be remembered by many Alumni for his inspiring talks 
on the history of the fraternity, based upon his acquaintance 
with some of the Founders. 

He made substantial financial contributions to some of our 
chapters, thus saving them from extinction. He also claimed 
credit for having founded several chapters. He was a member 
of the Masonic Order. 

Brother Brandes' passing truly marks the end of an impor- 
tant era in Phi Sig history. 

Chapters and alumni are earnestly requested to inform 
National Headquarters when they learn of the death of 
any member of the fraternity, so that our records can be 
kept current and notice of the death published in the 

CEcneSt i^encp (BtiStoolti 

Brother Ernest H. Griswold, Tau (Dartmouth) '11, passed 
away on May 3, 1972 — three weeks before his 83rd birthday. 
Coming from Phillips Exeter and Nashua H.S., he was presi- 
dent of his class in high school and was active in athletics. 
He received a gold medal for greatest proficiency in English. 
He taught at Franklin Academy in Malone, N.Y., and at 
Weston, Mass. On January 1, 1915, he became the youngest 
C.P.A. in the U.S. and in 1917 started his own business. He 
was also Professor of Accounting at Northeastern University 
from 1916 to 1923. In 1962, he became manager of the Port- 
land, Maine office of Lybrand, Ross Bros, and Montgomery. 

Brian 9!?irf)acl Bumpug 

Brother Brian Michael Bumpus, Epsilon Deuteron (Wor- 
cester) '71, was killed on July 15, 1972, when the Army 
vehicle he was riding in skidded out of control and crashed. 
A member of the Army Reserve, Brian was about to begin 
his summer maneuvers at A. P. Hill in Virginia, when the 
accident occurred. In Worcester, Massachusetts, he leaves his 
wife and two-year-old daughter.

Brother Com. John Leaver, Tau (Dartmouth) '55, was 
killed in a helicopter crash May 8 in the Gulf of Tonkin, 
performing his duties as Operations Officer of Destroyer 
Flotilla II. 

John was an NROTC midshipman at Dartmouth and had 
served on active duty since graduation. His Navy career was 
distinguished and varied. Just previous to his last assignment 
he was skipper of the USS Ramsey (DEG-3), which is a key 
unit in the Navy's Vietnam defense effort. His shipmates 
held a Memorial Service for him aboard the Ramsey on 
May 16.

By Herbert L. Brown, Phi '16 

Editor, Historian and Chairman of the 
Ritual Committee 

For centuries — long before college fraternities came into 
existence — there have been rituals. Religious orders have 
had them . . . organizations, based upon a common bond, 
have had them . . . societies, banded together by mutual 
interests, have had them. 

Man, being a gregarious animal, by nature has always 
tended to associate with one of his kind. When such an asso- 
ciation involves several individuals — men or women — a more 
formal group with a specific common purpose is usually the 
result. Generally a ritual, however simple or elaborate, evolves 
as an outgrowth of this association, because a common pur- 
pose is thereby established and such a ritual is the vehicle for 
proclaiming the goals and ideals to be furthered. 

The first ritual, used by the Founders of Phi Sigma Kappa 
and their immediate successors, was very simple, albeit very 
secret, mysterious and eerie, as described in the Rand History, 
from which the following is quoted — 

"Cutter went into some detail describing his own initia- 
tion. To the fifteen-year-old it must have been very exciting: 

"The unexpected awakening at 2 a.m. to find the light of 
a bull's-eye staring one in the face, the solemn command 
to get up and dress, the stealthy progress through entries as 
dark as Egypt with the admonitory grunts of the conductor 
to unseen allies at doors or in corners, the blindfolding in 
front of North College with its accompaniment of remarks 
as to the moon's being in the right place, the mysterious 
whistle with its still more mysterious answer. . . . 

"Walking the plank over a stream a thousand feet below 
(the ravine) was one of the great acts. Poor Bishop, alas, 
tumbled 'the thousand feet' into the brook. . . . 

"The journey from earth to the room was not an easy 
one. When the third floor was reached, one had to crawl up 
and through a window and down on his belly on the patent 
swing ladder into Fowler's bedroom. By more climbing the 
fourth floor was attained, and then the candidate was put 
into the luxurious coffin. The writer well remembers how 
his nose was bumped when Perry and his minions gently 
carried him into the secret chamber." 

"This was still before the days of the histrionic ritual 
with which most readers are familiar. There was merely a 
bit of formal dialogue and then the oath-taking. Of the 
latter Cutter wrote in 1921 : 

'That simple oath of the old days, so well written by the 
Founders, covered everything, and I can repeat it practically 
word for word today. The candidate knelt before a shrine, 
whose principal element was a death's head sufficiently illu- 
minated, the president solemnly seated above; the neophyte 
was unblindfolded and took in the details. ... It was well 

"It is worthy of record that the writer, in the early 
history first quoted, proceeded to deprecate the dependence 
upon horseplay, much of which is primitive and part of 
which is actually dangerous. 

'What is needed is an initiation which is a ceremonial 
without any bear's play or monkeying. Our principles can 
yield us a something which will impress the mind of the 
candidate that he is going into an order worth belonging 
to, and without the least danger of hurting his self-respect.' " 

Other portions of Rand's History made mysterious refer- 
ences to the Black Hole of Calcutta and a dungeon, which 

apparently played a part in that original ritual. 

At the 4th General Convention, held in Albany, N.Y., on 
February 20, 1891, a new, rather elaborate Initiation Ritual 
was adopted. It was the handiwork of Dr. William H. Happel, 
George A. Williams and Sherwood LeFevre of the Alden 
March Chapter (later named Beta when transferred to Union 
College). Happel, who was responsible for Act II and the 
first part of Act III, said he got the idea for them from the 
feudal courts of ancient Germany. This ritual was to be the 
official ceremony until the 28th General Convention at San 
Francisco in 1938. 

The delegates at the 26th General Convention at Ann Arbor 
in 1934, feeling that this Ritual had outlived its usefulness 
and was in some measure dangerous in enactment, called for 
an extensive revision. The task was turned over to a com- 
mittee, chaired by the late Past Grand President, Raymond G. 
Lafean of Mu Chapter. The completely revised Ritual, exem- 
plified and adopted at San Francisco in 1938, was almost 
wholly the work of Lafean. 

In 1942 the Council, sensing a general dissatisfaction with 
the Lafean ceremony, and acting in lieu of a General Con- 
vention during World War II, requested Herbert L. Brown, 
Phi '16, then Director of Region II, to further revise the 
ceremony, retaining the best portions of the Lafean version. 

This ritual authored by Brown was presented at the Dia- 
mond Jubilee (32nd) Convention at Boston in 1948. The 
ceremony was exemplified by an undergraduate team from 
Rho Deuteron (Gettysburg) Chapter and was unanimously 

At the 43rd General Convention, held in Memphis, Tenn., 
in 1970 the Ritual Committee, chaired by Herbert L. Brown, 
was instructed to prepare a further revision, after studying 
specific recommendations for updating the wording of the 
present ceremony and other changes . . . the revised version 
to be presented at the convention in 1973. The committee has 
discussed the proposed revisions at the Conclaves of all six 
Regions, and will be prepared to submit the changes which 
appear to reflect the opinions of the various Regions, so that 
they can be acted upon at the Centennial Convention in 
August 1973 at Amherst, Mass. 

Dignified and Dramatic Rituals 

Reprinted in abridged form from Fraternities in Our Colleges, 
by Clyde Sanfred Johnson, © 1972, National Interfraternity 
Foundation, New York, and from Banta's Greek Exchange. 

Of all the processes of indoctrination and socialization 
employed by fraternities, commendable and question- 
able, the single most important one remains the formal cere- 
mony. It is the "rite of passage," most clearly marking the 
transition from non-member to badge wearing brother in the 

At least in essentials, these rituals tend to remain unchanged 
from the manner in which they were formulated by founders, 
aside from deletions of sectarian emphasis. The esoteric 
words, mottoes, and symbolic meanings have been passed 
along from generation to generation. While the details are 
guarded as secret, enough is known about them to give assur- 
ance that the principles they express, often with impressive- 
ness and beauty, are positive in character. All of the members 

Fall, 1972 


of the National Interfraternity Conference have provided 
information about their ritual teachings to give assurance on 
this point. 

Directly or indirectly they tend to enjoin individuals to 
recognize the Deity; to live morally, honestly, and charitably; 
to value scholarship; to give loyalty and support to Alma 
Mater, to community, and to country; to serve mankind; and 
to practice virtues of friendship. Some show evidence of strong 
adherence to ethical principles; some doubtless have borrowed 
from formats of adult lodges. In company with secret societies 
in all cultures they may place the neophyte in a dramatic role, 
take him on a symbolic journey, enjoin him to secrecy and 
include mutual oaths of fraternal regard and helpfulness., 

They try to put into words the elusive but paramount con- 
cept in fraternity life — brotherhood. They express commit- 
ment to a basic premise that strong emotional attachments are 
worthwhile and satisfying. In glorifying God they magnify the 
worth of each of His children. 

Given a noble and idealistic nature, the placing in close 
juxtaposition of anything mean and degrading to personal 
dignity becomes quite inexplicable. A considerable body of 
fraternity men feel that neither substitutes nor prohibitions 
would be needed if there could be a "return to the altars," a 
remembrance and acting upon of sacred vows. Hazing would 
then be recognized as contravening the very meaning of 
fraternity, and fall away by that simple recognition. 

Those attributing a power in these ceremonies to so affect 
daily behavior tend to be older than most students. Charles 
G. Eberly, in exploring ritualistic influence, discovered a 
considerable gap in the attitudes of undergraduates and 
national officers in this regard. The former did not profess as 
strong an attachment to founding ideals as did the latter, and 
a majority of both viewed the ceremonial work primarily as 
valued for preserving tradition. 

With some evidence of a recent renaissance of general 
interest in symbolism by the younger generation, it has been 
suggested that better guidance might bring out the leadership 
needed to give ritual a fresher, deeper relevance. 

An Interesting Bit of History 

Excerpt from the One Hundred Year History 
of the University of Mass. 

**P RATernities had been established early in the 
* development of the college. The D.G.K. and 
Q.T.V. had appeared in 1869, while four years later 
Phi Sigma Kappa was born in what started out as a 
college prank. Six sophomores conceived the novel 
idea of initiating a guileless student into the mysteries 
of a non-existent secret society. However, becoming 
intrigued with the elaborate ritual and detailed con- 
stitution which they had created for the purpose the 
group concluded by establishing a genuine fraternity." 

Fraternity Today and Tomorrow 

(continued from page 6) 

Q. As a Past Grand President of your fraternity and 
Chairman of the Student Life Commission at U.S.C., 
do you feel that fraternities will measure up to their 
responsibilities in the future? 

A. Yes, I am extremely hopeful. I do think that we are going 
through a transition period. One that will mean, as in the 
case of Phi Sigma Kappa, that we may lose a few chapters, 
while at the same time we are growing in terms of adding 
new chapters. I think a number of our old chapters are going 
to have to significantly change the style in which they do cer- 
tain kinds of things and some of our priorities as a National 
fraternity are going to have to change significantly. I have 
made that plea for many years to Phi Sigma Kappa at the 
National level, but to the extent that the fraternities can do 
some of the things that I have indicated — appeal more forth- 
rightly to the entering student, be more relevant to his needs 
and interests, and problems, be involved with the total life 
of the campus and the community, but particularly be 
credible, and exciting, and dynamic in the academic life of 
the university. I think that fraternities have an extremely 
bright future. An observation I would have to make as one 
who lives on the campus ... I think we are beginning to see 
signs that it may even be possible that fraternities will ex- 
perience a kind of boom in the next five years. I think that 
there is a disenchantment of students with a deep personali- 
zation of the big campus, the big university, the multi-uni- 
versity. I think there is a yearning for meaningful inter- 
personal relationship. I think there is a desire for just the 
kind of community small group living that fraternities offer. 
For these and many other reasons it would not surprise me in 
the least if fraternities experience a tremendous revival in 
the next five years. That's exciting. It will mean a lot of 
hard work. It's going to mean involving our younger alumni 
as advisers, but I think we can do it and Phi Sigma Kappa's 
experience over the last 25 years would indicate to me that 
we have a lot going for us in response to this kind of op- 

Developing Human Resources 

The Blind and visually handicapped represent a 
virtually untapped supply of skills and abilities for the 
employer. The Toledo Society for the Blind, 1819 
Canton Street, Toledo, Ohio 43624, has recently de- 
veloped a program for placement of the Blind and 
visually handicapped in Northwestern Ohio. Brother 
Dennis Klukan (Beta Tetarton '64) asks your help 
and understanding in developing competitive employ- 
ment positions for the blind. Take advantage of this 
little used human resource. Call or write to Brother 
Klukan at the above address or your local agency for 
the blind. Help turn tax users into taxpayers. 



Additional contributors to the 1972 
Voluntary Alumni Support Fund since 
the Roll Call in the last Signet have 
increased the total as of October 15 
to $21,156. The donors not included 
in the listing in the Summer SIGNET 
with their chapters are presented 

Phi Sigma Kappa is most grateful 
to the 1,531 dedicated alumni who 
have so generously supported this 
campaign, the success of which 
makes it possible for the Grand 
Chapter to expand its services to our 
undergraduate chapters and colonies, 
as well as to Alumni.

Signet Professional 
Directory Proposed 

The Grand Council at its summer meeting author- 
ized the Editor of The SIGNET to explore the 
feasibility of publishing a Professional Directory in 
each issue of the magazine. A number of fraternity 
magazines are including this feature in their columns, 
providing Alumni with an inexpensive medium of 
advertising their services to the members of their 
respective fraternities. 

The SIGNET reaches approximately 20,000 read- 
ers, as well as 83 currently active chapters and 5 
colonies four times a year. These undergraduate groups 
and also thousands of our Alumni frequently have need 
for various professional services . . . and would be 
glad to give their business to a Phi Sig, if they knew 
the name and address of one within a reasonable dis- 
tance. Moreover this reader audience is considerably 
augmented by virtue of the fact that Signet copies go 
to the homes of undergraduate members and are seen 
and read by the members' parents. Still another source 
of business could well be recommendations by Phi Sigs 
to friends or relatives who are not Phi Sigs. 

If interest in such a directory is sufficient, it is con- 
templated that the nominal charge for a half-inch one 
column listing would be $15 for the four issues pub- 
lished annually; and $25 for a one-inch listing. 

The following professional classifications are pro- 
posed : 

Accountants Insurance Agents 

Architects Doctors 

Attorneys Resorts 

Contrators Tax Consultants 

Miscellaneo us 

This directory will provide another vehicle for let- 
ting your Phi Sig college mates know just what you are 
doing and where you are living. 

If you are interested in this project, please fill out 
the coupon below and mail it to Bert Brown, Editor 
and Business Manager. 

If the response warrants, we plan to begin this 
Directory in the Winter 1973 SIGNET.

Chapter Year. 


Epsilon Triton's Contribution to 
A. U.'s Rush Booklet 

Chapter does a fine promotional job. 

In A culture which stresses independence and individual 
introspectiveness, fraternity has, ironically, become in- 
creasingly functional, dare we say relevant. Fraternity fills a 
basic need, often vainly sought on The American University 
campus, to seek pleasure. And, the fraternity which best 
attains this end is Phi Sigma Kappa. 

Forget stereotypes. True, Phi Sig won the overall intra- 
mural championships and sported some twenty varsity ath- 
letes last year, but look at our cumulative grade point average 
of 3.13, before you call us jocks.If you label Phi Sig, you may 
correctly use the term "fun-loving" for we are that. Although 
many other terms have been used to describe our uninhibited 
manner, it is an acknowledged fact that we know how to have 
a good time. 

Some Phi Sig endeavors take the form of athletic competi- 
tion, interfraternity activity. University community service, 
fund-raising, freelancing at the Tavern or in the girl's quad, 
and most frequently at our much talked about parties. 

There can be no mistake about our classification as a social 
fraternity — to that end we strive. But there is more. Phi Sig 
amounts to a tightly knit mixture of brothers somehow united 
in their diversity. Ostensibly a paradox, but it works. 

The only prerequisite to become a Phi Sig is a desire to 
get the most out of life, for that is the goal of this fraternity. 

Enrich yourselves, enrich us. Go the best, go 


A Letter From A Proud Theta Tritonite 


I just wanted to tell you brothers at National that our 
colony at Nicholls State in Thibodaux, La. is by far the 
best chapter I have ever visited, be it in Texas north to 
Missouri or east along the Coastal States on up to W . Vir- 
ginia. Although only a colony, these fine brothers ex- 
emplified outstanding Character and Brotherhood among 
themselves and to me in my short stay here. I will be back 
down there during Thanksgiving to see them again, and I 
look forward to it with great anticipation of renewed 
friendship and brotherhood. 

Jim Borgan, a brother from National, is down here at 
Theta Triton right now and seems to have gotten some of 
our actives off their cans on their feet and our entire 
chapter with it. So let me thank you for his services. I 
have talked with him about our brothers in the swamp to 
see if they can't get initiated soon, since some are serious 
and would love nothing more than to be a fully acknowl- 
edged chapter member before graduation. I hope you 
might say something about this in the next SIGNET, so 
that any brothers passing through might see for them- 
selves what a great little chapter we have at Nicholls. By 
the way, I'm an alum of Theta Triton and was Best Active 
ichich I hope does more to show you how much I think 
of this chapter. I just think something good ought to be 
said about somebody that does a good job. Once again I 
hope praise is given them, if only on my word, in the 
next SIGNET. 


Carl W. Pettus, Theta Triton, '71 

Editor's Note: How right you are. Brother Pettus! 



Summer Meeting of 
Grand Council 

The Grand Council held its semi-annual meeting 
at National Headquarters in Drexel Hill, Pa., on 
Friday afternoon and evening, August 1 1th and all day 
Saturday, the 12th. All members were present except 
undergraduate members, Gary Bean and Bob Turner. 
Also present were Auditor Bill Tuttle, Executive 
Director Rick Snowdon, Signet Editor Bert Brown, 
and Chapter Consultants Jim Borgan, Wes Mann, and 
Dan Carmody. 

President Bill Aaron chaired most of the meeting 
with the exception of the early hours when Bob Rey- 
nolds occupied the chair in Bill's absence. 

A number of important items of business were 
transacted with specific action taken on proposals, de- 
signed to strengthen the fraternity. Herewith are listed 
those in which Signet readers will be especially inter- 

1. 1971-72 Audit, showing a decline in budgeted 
income due to insufficient initiates, thus result- 
ing in a financial operational loss. 

2. Adoption of the 1972-73 Budget, reflecting the 
need to gear expenses to a possible continuation 
of low initiating. 

3. Review of delinquency in meeting payment on 
Chapter House loans — with plans to renegoti- 
ate such loans at a higher rate of interest to 
insure a greater cash flow of money thus made 
available to lend to other deserving Chapter 
House Corporations. 

4. New Loan Policy to permit second mortgages 
on a matching dollar-for-dollar basis with Alum- 
ni and/or House Corporations. 

5. New Approach to Expansion and Colonization 
making it easier for groups to "go National". 

6. 1973 Convention and importance of the Leader- 
ship School in the program. 

7. Centennial Chapter Program, as referred to on 
the back cover of this SIGNET. 

8. Employment Service for Alumni, also described 
in detail in this SIGNET. 

9. Volunteer (District Governors and Advisers) 
Reorganization and Realignment -- seminar 
training program to insure better performance. 

10. Inactive Status — to be investigated for possible 
new approaches to this knotty question. 

11. Special drive for Signet Life Subscribers from 
the ranks of those now non-subscribers; also 
offer of a Professional and Business Directory 
listing for Alumni in the columns of The 

12. Crisis Chapters — continuous review with insist- 
ence that weaker chapters perform at a higher 
level of expectation in the area of better campus 
participation, greater manpower, more respon- 
sible financial operation, etc.

Omega Tet Wins Chariot Race 
at Cal State 

Den Hlr's. or is it Charlton Heston's chariot racing 
'-' laurels are safe, especially on the California State 
Univ.. Los Angeles, campus, where the Greek Letter 
fraternities held their annual chariot competition last 

Five of the 10 fraternities sent their chariots, each 
with a rider and four fraternity men for horses, down 
the track surrounding the football field recently as 
dozens of sorority girls and fraternity men cheered. 

Phi Sigma Kappa tore through the tape first, fol- 
lowed by Sigma Nu, last year's winner, with Lambda 
Chi Alpha a close third, and Tan Kappa Epsilon 
fourth. Sigma Alpha Epsilon's entry lost its wheels, 
rider and his seat near the start of the 200-yard sprint. 

The event was the highlight of Greek Week on the 
campus. The winner's trophy would be awarded, a 
spokesman for the Greek Council said, if Sigma Nu 
could find it.

News From the Chapters and Colonies 


University ot Massachusetts 

A lpha Chapter has continued its suc- 
i **■ cess story by enrolling ten new 
pledges. With these new pledges, and the 
unified spirit of the brothers, we are look- 
ing forward to a very successful year. 

We cordially invite Phi Sigs from all 
over the country to visit Alpha during 
the Centennial year. Our Centennial is a 
once-in-a-lifetime thing and a visit to 
Alpha could be a very rewarding ex- 

This summer a group of brothers 
formed a work detail and did some very 
important repairs around the house. Not 
only did they work but a summer rush 
program was started enabling us to start 
off the semester right, as far as rushing 
is concerned. 

Now that the new semester is here, 
Alpha is very busy with activities and 
projects. Our intramural football team 
has won its first four games, making a 
strong bid for campus champs. Not only 
are we looking forward to success in 
football; it is a sure bet that our volley- 
ball team will repeat as campus champs. 
The brothers have already begun practic- 
ing for both volleyball and basketball, 
and both teams look better than last year. 

Sports isn't the only thing happening 
this semester; we are off to another great 
semester socially and academically. Our 
social chairman has already thrown a 
few great parties, getting the brothers 
psyched for future events. Homecoming 
and Christmas formal should be the two 
best get-togethers of the semester. Ac- 
ademically Alpha is striving to better its 
2.9 cum of last semester. Our scholarship 
chairman, Paul Sweeney, has been a great 
help in getting guys up for class. He is 
also in the process of building a small 
library for the purpose of storing old 
books and papers for other brothers' 
future references.

A t Beta the academic year has just 
begun and we are organizing for 
an all important formal rush this term. 
This is the number one subject in our 
minds this fall, because we have done 
so poorly in the past two years. We are 
hopeful that both improved campus atti- 
tude towards fraternities and a renewed 
interest in rush on our part will net the 
manpower to replace nine graduating 
seniors. We were particularly apprecia- 
tive of the article from Alpha chapter 
in the summer Signet, and have incor- 
porated many of their suggestions in our 
plans for this year. 

After rush is off the ground we plan to 
travel to Boston or New York for a 

weekend in the big city and a visit to 
other chapters. This year we have already 
entertained some brothers from Epsilon 
Deuteron (WPI) after Union's first foot- 
ball game on our campus, and we look 
forward to visits from other brothers in 
the capital district. 

Otherwise socially our Phi Sig Coffee- 
house is presenting several nights of live 
entertainment by brothers, Alumni, and 
other Union students for the benefit of 
various groups, such as the two presiden- 
tial candidates and the American Cancer 
Society. We are, of course, looking for- 
ward to another superb Homecoming 
weekend and the return of many Alumni 
for the festivities on November 4th.

West Virginia University 

Cvery semester Rush means a lot of 
hard work and a lot of time given 
up. This semester at W.V.U. the Brothers 
of Delta chapter are expected to do even 
more work than before, because of the 
change in Rush. Rush has been changed 
to "Open Rush," which means that we 
can take pledges at any time during the 
semester. So far Phi Sigs are setting the 
pace for the other fraternities on campus 
by formally pledging 12 new men. 

To help us with our Rush we have 
been making improvements on our house. 
A painting crew, headed by Brother 
"Bopper". has been laboring on the ex- 
terior of the house while new living room 
furniture has helped to beautify the in- 
terior. The brothers were counting on 
sorely needed cafeteria chairs and tables, 
but our budget put an end to that. (A 
small donation from our Alums would 
help immensely). 

Brother Dave Dorsey. a transfer from 
Arizona State, has taken charge of our 
Little Sister program. Hopefully Dave 
can come up with some fresh ideas and 
get this program back on its feet. 

Homecoming has just ended and many 
of our Alums paid us a welcome visit. 
We heard a lot of talk about how messed 
up we are now and how the house is 
in bad shape, but then when we were 
trying to get a new house built we never 
saw them or their money. 

We, the Brothers of Delta Chapter, ex- 
tend an invitation to any brother(s) 
who may wish to visit us during the 
course of the school year. If any other 
chapter is having trouble we wish you 
would call on us for assistance.

University of Maryland 

Greetings fellow Phi Sigs. Well, it 
looks like Eta chapter is going to be 
around for a long time to come. Only 
a year ago, with a very dilapidated house 
and a membership of only four, Eta was 
ready to fold. But now, although having 
lost nine brothers for various reasons, we 
have twelve brothers and twelve pledges, 
reflecting one of the finest growth rates 
on campus. 

Our main concern now is the comple- 
tion of our new living room which we 
are redecorating and refurnishing a' la 
Stanley Kubrick. 

Although not widely involved in sports 
this semester, we nonetheless are holding 
a 2 win-1 loss record in football so far, 
and claim a member of the Varsity base- 
ball team among our ranks. 

Upcoming events this fall include an 
extravagant Homecoming celebration and 
a possible winter formal. 

We here at Eta chapter extend our 
wishes to all Phi Sigs for a successful 
and enjoyable semester, and invite any 
and all to stop in anytime when in the

T? i cause of the meager results of 
^ Spring term's rush (three pledges, but 
they're all good guys, of course). Kappa 
has once again started to re-vamp its 
rush program. We are trying to get more 
personal contact with the rushees by in- 
viting them out for smokers as a group 
and then leaving it up to the individual 
brothers to ask rushees if they are inter- 
ested in coming out to the house from 
then on. We have also shifted the start 
of our ten week pledge program from the 
beginning to the third week of each term. 
This will allow us to have a concentrated 
three week rush each term which will 
alleviate the "let-down" we usually ex- 
perience at the end of each term and 
minimize the risk of an acceptee losing 
interest while he waits to begin pledging. 
Rush workshops were ran at the begin- 
ning of the term, using National's stock 
rushee questions as a guide. These work- 
shops proved to be rather useful for 
smoothing out the rough spots in each 
brother's "pitch." It is still too early to 
tell what the results of the new program 
will be, but so far the response has been 

One of our more unique problems last 
year was having too many men wanting 
to live in the house. This is a problem 
many fraternities dream about, but was 
a nightmare for us. Finally, after much 
discussion and many proposals, eight of 
the more senior brothers decided to move 

Fall, 1972 


out on their own. So at Penn State we 
have one chapter and two mini-chapters: 
The Stately Mansion, Phi Sig East, and 
Phi Sig Kenfield. 

We'd like to thank the brothers at 
Tennessee for a great time and their 
hospitality (even if the game wasn't too 
good) and invite any Phi Sig to drop in 
on them at any time. We would also 
like to give our brothers at Texas a

/""Ireetings! The brothers of Mu were 
^ welcomed back to Philadelphia by 
the warm September sun and a house 
anxious for our ubiquitous congeniality. 
After a few days of scrubbing, painting 
and general repairs, we awaited the on- 
slaught of papers, tests and Murine, re-

improvements this year call for a new 
cellar ceiling, which in the past had 
been the target of many frustrated pool 
players' wrath. 

Under the leadership of Ken Mulvaney, 
we are looking forward to a busy social 
calendar and an active rush. On the 
drawing boards are a number of mixers 
and parties, a casino night sponsored by 
our house, and a trip to Lehigh for a 
football game, followed by a joint party 
with our brothers in Bethlehem. Spirits 
are also high for a successful intramural 

In the past our house has prided it- 
self on its ability to field a brotherhood 
of close-knit individuals having diverse 
interests and activities. Among our num- 
ber are 5 members of Penn's basketball 
team, ranked third in the nation last 
year, as well as brothers on crew, base- 
ball, fencing, hockey, and track and field. 
School publications, Interfraternity Coun- 
cil, and the Community Relations Board 
are also staffed by our members. 

Last year the University bestowed 
upon our brotherhood the Crawford- 
Madera Award in recognition of our 
achievements as the most active and well- 
rounded fraternity on campus. We intend 
to maintain this position of leadership 
at Penn by continuing our individual 
pursuits, keeping in mind the common 
goal of academic, athletic and fraternal 
excellence, commensurate with the Phi 
Sigma Kappa tradition.

The brothers of Nu Chapter want to 
■*■ extend their greetings to all fellow 
Phi Sigs. Returning in late August this 
year, the brothers and pledges whipped 
the house into shape and immediately 
resumed the fraternity lifestyle where 
they left off last spring. 

A strong and enthusiastic pledge class 
is taking an important part in bringing 
Nu's spirit and brotherhood to a peak. 
The fall rushing program is off to an 
early start under the direction of hand- 
some Harry Gustafson and suave Bobby 
Grott. Greg Silvestry, Nu chapter's man 
for all reasons, is handling the social 
planning for the semester with a highly 
successful outdoor band party under his 
belt. In intramural sports Phi Sig is pre- 
pared to make a strong bid to win the 
President's Cup. Our football team is 
determined, after two crushing wins, to 
retain the football championship won 
last year and continue our undefeated 
streak. Brent Willey, Damon Keyes, and 
Bill Neill are adding their talents to Le- 
high's strong varsity football squad. Mike 
Lieberman is preparing for the coming 
wrestling season after a strong varsity 
showing as a freshman. In the area of 
scholarship, we can only improve our 
standing in the university with the caliber 
of men now in the house.

^ Few people here coveted the pres- 
ident's job last summer. A fire broke out 
in the apartment building next door where 
we rent two floors. Although our rooms 
sustained only smoke damage, the build- 
ing was closed indefinitely for repairs. 
Fortunately everyone got out safely (by 
ladders and ledges!). The president then 
had to spend most of the summer look- 
ing for rooms for the fifteen of us who 
cannot be fitted into the chapter house. In 
Boston and with our budget, that was a 
fairly difficult task. 

However, not only did we find a new 
set of apartments the week before rush 
week and renovated them, we also man- 
aged to lure ten of the incoming fresh- 
men at MIT into the house. Peace at 
last returned to Happy Valley. Our pres- 
ent problem is experimenting with in- 
house personnel cooking for us, a cur- 
rent trend in the fraternities on campus. 
So far the food is rarely on time, but 
most people agree it is at least as good 
as a hired cook's. 

We look forward to seeing anyone from 
another chapter looking for lodging in 
Boston, as it is about the only time we 

feel we are in a national fraternity. The 
light over the front door burns all night 
and the doorbell works for anyone.

Cor the third straight year Omega 
chapter has had an excellent fall 
rush. This year's rush was the best of 
all, because we got 16 pledges! This will 
give us a total of 20 candidates for 
initiation and 38 total members living in 
our house. An extensive summer cam- 
paign started our fall rush off with ex- 
cellent results. Our plan has always been 
to try to see as many rushees before the 
fall as possible. In this way we develop 
prospective leads on rushees and start 
members thinking about rush. You can- 
not afford to lose your momentum dur- 
ing the spring and summer, or you will 
not have as good a fall rush. 

The summer vacation here at Cal is 
over three months long. During this time 
it is too easy to get out of touch with 
the house and the other members. Our 
summer rush is as much a time for 
everyone in the house to get together for 
a little fun, as it is a time to meet 
rushees. We tried to extend the scope of 
our summer rush this year by having a 
party in Sacramento. Our special thanks 
to Alumnus Jerry Duncan for hosting the 
party at his home. 

Omega would like very much to extend 
its alumni relations. We would like to 
see more Alumni by for Board meetings, 
alumni meetings, and football games. We 
are trying to get an alumni Big Brother 
for each of our pledges also, as we feel 
this is a way to broaden the meaning of 
the pledge program and get the Alumni 
back into a more meaningful participa- 
tion in house affairs. The house seems 
to have lost touch with members of the 
graduating classes between 1950 and 
1970. Perhaps they have forgotten that 
the house still exists or feel that they are 
not needed. The house is going strong, 
but wants to see more alumni support. We 
are planning a number of alumni dinners, 
cocktail parties, and other alumni events. 

During football games we also supply 
free parking 1 block from the stadium. 
an excellent before game luncheon, a 
place to sit down and relax, and free 
beer after the game. 

To all alumni reading this article, 
drop by and see YOUR house and the

The brothers of Alpha Deuteron are 
back for another stimulating year. 
The IM football team led by former 
high school All-American, Don Rutledge, 
is ranked number one in the John 
"Greek" Nassos preseason football polls. 
With over 50 fraternities on campus that 

is quite an honor indeed! After winning 
the softball championship last spring with 
a perfect 10-0 record, it would sure be 
sweet to win two titles in a row. 

Little Sister chairman, Steve Kazmer, 
reports that the guys are really up for 
Little Sisters this fall. Last spring we 
started a one month pledge program for 
the new Little Sisters. During the period 
the pledges were expected to become 
acquainted with the brothers, and learn 
some of the fraternity history. The pro- 
gram was completed with a "Hell Night" 
and the formal initiation of 18 girls as 
lifetime members of the Little Sisters of 
the Three T's. Led by their brilliant 
pledge trainer, Al Johnson, the program 
was a rousing success. We are now mak- 
ing preparations for a fall rush for some- 
time in October. 

Congratulations are in order to the 
5 newest brothers of Alpha Deuteron. 
Brad "Wiener" Emge. Dave "Pearl" 
Kline, Jim "Boot" Young, Dave "Com- 
anche" Frihart. and Ben "Muff" App 
were all recently initiated. We already 
have 10 pledges this fall and expect sev- 
eral more before informal rush ends. The 
43 brothers currently living in the house 
is the largest number since the graduation 
of the 71 Machine. 

We would also like to welcome Dave 
Carter '68, Jay Staley '68, and Ock Eng 
'72 back to Champaign, as they are here 
for further studies.

Triii: opening of the school year 
brought with it many mixed emo- 
tions — a reluctance to abandon the care- 
free days of summer and brush the cob- 
webs out from brains rusty with disuse, 
and the pleasure of rekindling old friend- 
ships. There was an element of sadness. 
Many brothers returned to find that two 
old friends of Epsilon Deuteron had 
passed away. Brian M. Bumpus '70, a 
friend of many current Phi Sigs, was 
killed in a service related accident. Our 
biggest loss was the passing away of A. 
Wilbur "Webby" Barr, Alumni Treasurer 
for over forty years. Those of us Phi 
Sigs. who had the pleasure of working 
with, or just knowing this dedicated man. 
will know how much he meant to the 
success of Epsilon Deuteron. 

A growing feeling of enthusiasm also 
fills the brothers of Epsilon Deuteron. A 
hardworking group of brothers under the 
able leadership of Pres. Richard Socha 
and House Mgr. Richard Piwko sacri- 
ficed their free time by returning to the 
house early and completely repainting the

Extensive repairs took place throughout 
the house, including the installation of a 
dishwasher, a long-awaited item. A strong 

spring rush netted five new pledges, cur- 
rently working hard towards the day of 
initiation. Several brothers are also cur- 
rently hard at work on the Marathon 
Basketball Game, sponsored by the W.P. 
I. Interfraternity Council. The United 
Fund is the big winner in this game, and 
the entire house will lend a hand towards 
the success of this yearly event. The 
Chapter is beginning to reap the benefits 
of working together. A large task re- 
mains to be done, however. Rushing, 
under the control of Tom Socha, is just 
beginning. Only the continued efforts of 
the brothers can replenish the life force 
of the chapter. 

Two recent graduates have been ap- 
pointed to important positions within the

ing graduate school, has temporarily

our new Chapter Adviser.

Georgia Institute of Technology 

W7e had a good quarter this past spring 
and hope you were as lucky. Grades 
were coming up for most of the brothers, 
the weather was cool but still nice, and 
our softball team did well. Our soft- 
ballers went 6-0 for the season in our 
division before losing to Sigma Chi in 
the playoffs. Since Sigma Chi went on to 
win the fraternity title for the school, 
we don't feel too bad. 

I want to take this opportunity to 
thank and encourage a small and ener- 
getic group of our chapter Alumni. These 
men have been working hard to obtain 
feasible plans for a new chapter house — 
Ed Gilbreath, Doyle Lindsey, Bill Rinell, 
and Ross Cox, just to name a few. They 
are doing a great job but could use some 
help from the "Phantom Phi Sigs" lurk- 
ing in the dark of our files. All help will 
be greatly appreciated. 

With a new house hopefully just over 
the horizon, the active brothers have had 
a little more energy. We have cleaned 
most of the two lots we own and plan to 
remove a large tree from the center of 
one of the lots. We also have bought 
beds for the "new house" using money 
given by our alumni, and have stored 
them in our present house. Nothing like 
wall-to-wall boxsprings to enliven a room 
(too bad they are all vertical). 

We have had several visitors in the 
past year from all over the nation, and 
enjoyed having them. Just remember to 
come see us if you are in Atlanta; We 
usually have a couch available and one 
of them is pretty comfortable.

/^reetings to all Phi Sigs from the 
brothers of Omicron Deuteron on 
Sorority Row. Yes, folks after a long 
hard road we've integrated the University 
of Alabama. (Again). We are the first 
fraternity to occupy the hallowed row 
of sororities on the Alabama campus. 

Prior to rush this year we were visited 
by national's free agents, Wes Mann and 
Dan Carmody. We always appreciate 
help in rush. During fall rush we pledged 
nine fantastic guys and have several 
more hopefuls in the wings. 

Sports are looking up for us. This past 
week we won our first football game in 
three years, putting this year's overall 
record at 1-2. 

Brother Jack Obitts draws this fall's 
laurels for being selected as editor of the 
Alabama Engineering News. Brother 
Craig Childs is to be congratulated for 
his 2.9 overall on a 3.0 system. This is 
Craig's second 2.9 in four semesters, the 
other two being 3.0's. We remain well 

above the all-men's average in grades. 

We have found ourselves lax in the 
past in writing thank-you's to other chap- 
ters who have extended brotherhood and 
hospitality to visiting OD's. So at this 
time we would like to thank Xi Deuteron 
(Tennessee), Kappa Deuteron (Georgia 
Tech), Chi Triton (Arizona State), Ome- 
ga Deuteron (Southern Cal), and Theta 
Triton (Texas). If any of you have been 
left out, we thank you too.

Di Deuteron seems headed for a ban- 
ner year during this, the most im- 
portant season for Phi Sigs everywhere, 
our 100th anniversary. 

Our pledge class (associate members) 
now numbers 15, one of, if not the 
largest, of the 43 fraternities at OSU; 
giving us a packed house for fall. 

Pi Deut's resurgence is mainly due to 
the efforts of Rush Chairman Mike Mor- 
ris, President Joe Fischlin and Chapter 
Consultant Wes Mann. Wes has re- 
vitalized the organization of the chapter 
and has helped lay the groundwork for 
our future growth. Joe has provided 
greatly needed leadership in the right 
direction, while Mike was the moving 
force behind our comprehensive Spring 
rush program. 

Late summer rush parties were planned 
for Sept. 2-3 and Sept. 23-25. These 
efforts were aimed primarily toward 
town students. 

Pres. Fischlin's leadership qualities are 
showing on the total fraternity scene at 
Ohio State. He has been named assistant 
rush chairman of the Interfraternity 

Phi Sigs here are looking forward to 
another good academic year. Our overall 
accume started climbing last year and we 
hope the perfect season the Buckeye 
football team will provide this fall doesn't 
inhibit the reason we're all in school — 
academic achievement.

University of North Carolina 

TUIello from the brothers at Upsilon 
Deuteron! With only a few weeks 
gone, we're really busy this semester. 
We're concerned mainly with Fall Rush 
right now. We already have 3 pledges 
even before Formal Rush starts. All it 
takes for a great pledge class is time, 
patience, and plenty of searching. We're 

hoping to do well and hope that all 
chapters are successful. 

Some great things happened here in the 
past year. We're still up in the air over 
our accomplishments. Perhaps the most 
important were the formation of our 
Little Sisters Program and the trophies 
we received for Best Pledge Class on 
Campus and for collecting the most 
money in the Community Charity Drive. 
We've had a great year and things are 
just starting. Our name has been heard 
and we're not about to sink into ob- 
scurity now that we've tasted a little of 
the limelight! 

Our Social Calendar is looking great 
this fall. There's nothing quite like a 
football weekend to put everyone in a 
partying mood. We've experimented with 
having parties with other houses on 
campus. As a general rule, it's worked 
out very well. We get to meet other men, 
check out their situations in the Greek 
system, and have a great party all at 
the same time. We're hoping to expand 
our social program in this direction, be- 
cause it's really easy to finance a fan- 
tastic party when the costs are shared by 
two houses — sort of a two-parties-for-the 
price-of-one deal. 

On the whole, things are going quite 
well and I hope I've been able to share 
some of our excitement with you. We're 
a small chapter, but the bond of Brother- 
hood is very strong. We're experiencing 
real unity among our members! We're 
going to sell ourselves during Rush on our 
closely knit Brotherhood. It seems as 
though everything is a group effort — 
studying, going to class, partying.

University of Kentucky 

/TIreetings from the brothers of Phi 
Deuteron in the heart of the Blue- 
grass! We are pleased to extend congrat- 
ulations to all Phi Sigs throughout the 
land on starting another scholastic year 
in the Ever-Growing Throng, and sin- 
cerely hope that our many chapters did 
as well with Fall Rush as did the broth- 
ers here at the University of Kentucky. 

Starting the year in great style, Phi 
Deuteron has pledged 12 outstanding 
young men during the formal Rush 
period, and hopes are high that the class 
will be expanded during informal Rush. 
Also, an excellent showing has been re- 
corded by our Little Sister chapter, which 
has initiated a number of pert young 
ladies eager to aid the active chapter 
through a number of money- and en- 
thusiasm-raising projects. 

Along with an outstanding schedule 
filled with activity both in the service 
and social fields, Phi Deuteron has man- 
aged to build a potentially superior 
athletic program. The intramural foot- 
ball team of the fraternity has begun the 



year with a fine 3-1 record, good enough 
to qualify it for the Greek pigskin play- 
offs later on in the fall. In addition, 
teams being organized for the athletic 
events show great possibilities for cham- 
pionships under the banner of the Triple- 

As fall rapidly closes in on the Uni- 
versity community, thoughts turn to 
football, and from there to the most 
special weekend of the fall, Homecoming. 
This year, more than ever, Phi Deuteron 
is striving for increased alumni participa- 
tion, and to promote this is again pre- 
senting a schedule for its older brothers 
that is to be matched by few in the area. 
Included on this year's agenda are ban- 
quets, receptions, luncheons, and the 
climaxing presentation of the Outstanding 
Alumni Award. Given by the active 
chapter, this annually recognizes our 
most valuable Alum, and is a small token 
of Phi Deuteron's appreciation for the 
special interest manifested in the chapter's 
welfare by the honoree.

University of Southern California 

At this writing, most of our efforts 
•^ so far have been dedicated to Fall 
Rush, which netted the largest pledge 
class the Omega Deuteron chapter has 
had in several years. (This achievement 
is especially noteworthy, since, unlike 
most other Phi Sig chapters, we compete 
against 25 other fraternities every rush, 
rather than a mere eight or nine.) High- 
lights of the active, aggressive rush in- 
cluded the Franklin Pierce Memorial 
Party, the Phi Sig Luau, and the famed 
Humphrey Bogart Memorial Pledge-Ac- 

tive Party, held at the former domicile 
of Humphrey Bogart, high in the Hol- 
lywood Hills. (Our entire chapter is 
indebted to Brothers Steve Ball and 
Dean Torrence for their cooperation in 
again allowing us to utilize their home 
for this party.) We'd like to etxend a 
special "Thank you" to our alumni ad- 
viser, Lawrence Young, and especially to 
his wife, Mrs. lanis Young, for their 
invaluable assistance and aid in rush this 
summer and fall. 

Most of our members will soon depart 
for Northern California to view the USC- 
Stanford game. Several carloads are em- 
barking upon the long drive to Palo 
Alto, guaranteeing a strong Phi Sig con- 
tingent in the SC rooting section. 

The report of the University's Student 
Life Commission has just been released. 
The sweeping changes proposed for the 
Greek system include the retaining of a 
Graduate Resident Adviser for each fra- 
ternity on campus. Brother Ed Daley, 
now a grad student in engineering, has 
done a superlative job so far as our GRA. 

In interfraternity sports. Phi Sig appears 
stronger than ever. Our football team 
shows tremendous improvement over last 
year, and won handily in its last en- 
counter. Volleyball also appears to be 
a strong point.

Purdue University 

"The brothers of Delta Triton started 
off the new 72 school year as 
psyched as ever. There's a lot of new 
blood here at Delta Triton, since six 
brothers graduated. The brothers are 
looking forward to another successful 
year here at Purdue. 

To start the year off right, we held an 
all-campus dance co-sponsored with the 
Delta-Gammas. The dance is one of the 
biggest all campus social events held here 
at Purdue. An estimated two thousand 
students attended which added to its 
tremendous success. 

The main thing on the brothers' minds 
now is Rush. Rushing is a vital part of 
our fall schedule. We now have three 
pledges living in the house. One of the 
pledges is a product of our high school 
rush program conducted at the end of 
the last school term. The high school 
rush continued during the summer with 
brothers visiting prospective rushees at 
their homes. Fall rush is concentrated 
mainly on these past high schoolers. 

Rush consists mainly of smokers de- 
signed to get prospective members over 
to the chapter house to meet the broth- 
ers and get acquainted with Phi Sigma 
Kappa. After several of these smokers 
are held, a dance will be planned for the 
brothers, rushees, and their dates. A Phi 
Sig Cinema is also being planned, where 
movies will be shown. 

Our active membership has increased 
due to three new brothers transferring 
from Purdue-Calumet (Beta Hexaton). 
One of these new brothers is now serv- 
ing as vice-president of the chapter. Along 
with the new members come a multitude 
of new ideas. We should like to thank 
our brothers of Beta Hexaton for this 
contribution to Delta Triton's ever grow- 
ing throng.

University of Akron 

""Phe men of Eta Triton maintained a 
very full schedule this summer. Our 
time was well spent on a variety of parties 
and sporting events as well as several 
house improvements. This summer was 
especially rewarding in the area of rush. 
This was due to the fact that rush was 
totally informal even to the extent that 
freshmen were eligible to pledge prior 
to the start of school. Through a series 
of visits to homes and our own social 
events we were the only house on campus 
to take a pledge class. 

When classes opened this fall we had 
12 pledges and the outlook for more was 
very good. We have already redone our 
pledge education program and it is work- 
ing quite well. 

A newly paved basketball court has 
been added to our parking area. All 
work and planning was done by the 
brothers. We also are planning other im- 
provements to our house. 

Brothers are active in all areas from 
freshman counseling to varsity athletics. 
After last spring's great performance in 
Greek Week and our tremendous poten- 
tial this year our house will hold a high 
place on this campus. We hope to show 
that, though on many campuses the can- 
dle of true fraternity is flickering, at Eta 
Triton chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa, the 
light is burning brightly.

niture, washing windows, cleaning the 
kitchen, and the grounds around the 
house as well as a number of smaller 
tasks that were needed. Under the super- 
vision of our house manager, Dante 
Votolato, it turned out to be a worth- 
while endeavor for all involved. At the 
present moment we are in the process of 
painting the outside of our house. 

The second big project that concerns 
us now is that of Rush. We organized 
an open house on the first night of 
classes to welcome freshmen and anyone 
else interested in our fraternity. In spite 
of a rainy night we did get a substantial 
number of interested men to show up. 
This it is hoped will instill some sort of 
feeling and response within them and to- 
ward our house, so that future open 
houses may bring more and more new 
men to Lambda Triton based on our 
constant hopes to bring our ideals and 
lifestyles to the freshmen and independ- 
ents on this campus. 

A final note of interest concerns that 
of intramural sports. It's that time of 
year again when fraternities throughout 
the campus are preparing to do battle on 
the gridiron. We at Lambda Triton stand 
a good chance this year of performing 
well due to last year's semi-finalist finish. 
Still remaining on this year's team will 
be many if not most of last year's stars 
including this year's quarterback, Bob 
"D-bone" Divenuti.

""The coming year is laced with chal- 
lenges for brothers and alumni of 
Beta Tetarton. 

Since being thrust into the national 
spotlight in May, 1970, Kent State Uni- 
versity has been struggling for a return 
to stability, while at the same time rec- 
ognizing the needs of a diversified stu- 
dent body. And just as the university has 
undergone a period of introspection and 
change, so has the Beta Tetarton Chapter. 

Like most Greek organizations at Kent 
State, Beta Tetarton has been fighting to 
keep the doors open in the face of in- 
creasing anti-Greek sentiment. 

But the Beta Tet Brothers — now around 
20 in number — can look with pride at 
their own chapter diversity and point to 
the fact that changes have been made in 
rush, in the pledge program, and in the 
overall concept of fraternity living to 
reach the mainstream of university life. 

Today, Beta Tetarton faces the chal- 
lenge of communicating with the univer- 
sity community that fraternities — Phi 
Sigma Kappa in particular — can offer a 
vehicle for identification and involvement

To meet our goals — that of strengthen-

more active role in campus affairs — we 
need the involvement of all Beta Tet-

The active chapter is committed to this 
program of expansion and growth, but 
what about the Beta Tet Alumni? The 
active chapter needs reassurances from 
the Alumni that there is a point in work- 
ing hard to keep the fraternity operating 
on a continuing basis. We are asking the 
Alumni to come back to the fraternity 
via letter or personal visit — and to get 
involved. With everyone's help, the time 
is ripe for Beta Tetarton to take on an 
increasingly important role at Kent State

/"Greetings to all our fellow brothers 
from Gamma Tetarton Chapter. The 
Fall Semester got off to a fast start with 
a very successful work week in which all 
the brothers cooperated to do great 
amounts of work in a few days. Among 
things accomplished were the rebuilding 
of the dining room and the repainting of 
the main house. Now, several weeks into 
the semester, we are in the process of 
totally refurnishing our formal room. 

This year rushing got off to an un- 
usually early start. We normally start 
about six weeks into the semester, but 
this year we started after three weeks. 
Rushing Chairman Dave Jehle of the 
class of '73 says that Rushing prospects 
are very promising, considering the re- 
vamped schedule. 

September 30th brought the house its 
first big weekend of the year. Highlights 
of the weekend were a Friday night con- 
cert, followed by movies. Saturday of that 
weekend we had a Cocktail Party, Buffet. 
and Band Party. We all had an exciting 
weekend. Later this year, sometime after 
Thanksgiving recess, we expect to have 
an enjoyable Christmas weekend, in which 
we will have a party for local orphans 
along with our usual festivities.

Intramural football has already started 
with both Phi Sig I and II teams being 
victorious in their first games. Having 
won both football and softball champion- 
ships last year, we feel sure that we will 
have another successful year. 

Brother R. Young, D. Hutson, J. Mor- 
ris, and R. Forras attended the Region 
III Conclave held in Atlanta during 
August. This proved to be extremely 
helpful for us to prepare for open rush. 
We also are taking advantage of the 
money making projects discussed there. 

We here at Omicron Tetarton chapter 
expect this to be an outstanding year, 
and we wish this for everyone else.

University of Tennessee at Martin 

Excitement is in the air once again 

here at the University of Tennessee 

at Martin, as the brothers of Tau Tetarton 

prepare for another fall quarter full of 
football games, parties, and brotherhood. 

The first item on the agenda is a suc- 
cessful fall rush for which the brothers 
are cleaning the house, making contacts 
with prospective rushees, and planning 
a rush week that will surely gain many 
new pledges for our chapter. We also 
plan to have a rush workshop prior to 
formal rush where the brothers can 
come together to discuss all aspects of 
rushing procedures. 

Homecoming this year will be changed 
so that more emphasis can be placed on 
our alumni brothers. We plan to have a 
dinner Friday night before Homecoming 
especially for Alumni, as well as a cock- 
tail party following the game. This will 
all be topped off by a dance for the broth- 
ers, pledges, and Alumni Saturday night. 

I.F.C. sporting events for fall quarter 
include golf, rope-pull and volleyball. 
The brothers are really getting psyched 
up and we hope to have our best year 
ever in I.F.C. sports. We are also look- 
ing forward to our annual pledge-active 
football game later on in the quarter. 

We plan to end fall quarter with our 
annual Christmas party for retarded chil- 
dren here at Martin.

The Geek Speaks ! ! ! 

The brothers of Up Tet anticipate a 
successful year, both scholastically and 
fraternally. The fall rush has gotten off 
to a great start. Through fine planning 
and the concentrated efforts of the 
brothers, we feel a large pledge class can 
be expected this quarter. 

This summer our Clambake saw the 
usual return of many Alumni and proved 
to be a good time for all. Our annual 
Bourbon Open Golf Classic, (also known 
as the Robert Witmeyer Golf Tourna- 
ment), held at Rochester's Chili Coun- 
try Club, was won by Dave Van Zandt, 
Rick Hillimire and Jim McNamara. 

Our congratulations to Brothers Eloy 
Emeterio and Mark Bobb for being 
awarded the Watts Scholarship Society 
award and one of the Foundation's 
Undergraduate Scholarships, respectively. 

Our Little Sisters program has really 
improved and expanded since its origin 
here last spring. The girls express a gen- 
uine interest in the brothers of Up Tet, 
and are invaluable to rush. Through 
Spaghetti Dinners and similar functions, 
we have coordinated our rush with the 
Little Sisters, which proves to be a 
highly successful idea. 

We wish the best of luck to all chap- 
ters in the coming year!

/""\mega Tetarton chapter has itself a 
^ new house at 1423 S. Garfield Ave.. 
Alhambra. Ca. This rush our chapter is 
using all of its resources as a rushing 
force. Our alumni have been helping 
organize rush functions and are sponsor- 
ing a Monte Carlo night. They have been 
coming up to the house to speak with 
prospective members about joining the 
chapter. This effort is strengthening the 
rush program and active and alumni ties. 
Previously unseen Alumni are starting to 
present themselves at the rush functions. 

We have seven new Little Sisters. This 
powerful group of workers is helping 
organize and sponsor events. On our 
recent bus beach party our Little Sisters 
proved themselves worthy of the honor 
of being a Little Sister through the ordeal 
of drinking beer, and our chapter Troll 
proved he had too much to drink on the 
way home from the beach. 

This rush shall certainly be remem- 
bered as a great one not only because 
of the new rushees we are getting, but 

also because of the manpower we are 
reviving in the alumni club and Little 
Sister program.

University of New Mexico 

A lpha Pentaton chapter is in the 
** middle of a rebuilding year at the 
University of New Mexico. After bot- 
toming out last year, things are looking 
better. We obtained six pledges during 
rush and have several more potential 
rushees in the offering. In addition to 
this, actives that left the chapter dis- 
enchanted are also returning. We are 
currently trying to organize some alumni 
support with encouraging results. 

We are participating more in IFC by 
having exchanges with other fraternities 
and sororities. Also we are trying our 
hand in intramurals with mixed results. 
We tried to field a football team, but 
could just make the man power require- 
ments and after three games decided we 
would drop it. However, we will take 
part in bowling and possibly have the 
best table tennis team in intramurals. 

After successfully pulling off walkout, 
the pledges are planning pledge preferen- 
tial. It will be held Oct. 14 at the Rama- 
da Inn. We hope it will serve the purpose 
of getting the pledges, actives, and Alum- 
ni together and getting a cohesive unit 

Finally, in closing, we are optimistic 
at Alpha Pentaton. It will take quite a 
bit more work, until we are a stable chap- 
ter again, but we arc off to a good start. 
If any Alumni of this chapter read this, 
we would appreciate it very much if they 
would contact us at 1806 Mesa Vista 
Rd. N.E.; Albuquerque. New Mexico.

Our intramural football squad is getting

finished second last year. The Phi Sigs 
are out to defend last year's first place in 
overall intramurals. 

Bill Buge, our new social chairman, has 
been getting the house psyched for the 
annual Cowboy Party. This has been 
one of our wilder events in the past 
years. There's been some argument in 
the house as to the most deserving 
brother for the * Horny Man of the Year 
award. The cowboy party should help 
clear up the issue. Larry Little considers 
himself a sure winner. 

Ski freaks predominate at Gamma

the snow will fall. Everyone's anxious to 
hit the slopes. We hope to see brothers 
from neighboring chapters drop in and 
try some of the world's greatest skiing.

team came in first and second in the two 
league races and the Sigger jocks are

still in first place for the All Sports 

We were really surprised to receive the 
Region I Scholarship Award for this

have changed so much to warrant this. 
Thank you, Foundation. 

Northeastern University has granted 
us a $20,000 loan and the long needed 
house improvements are finally happen- 
ing. We've got a new paint job, new 
roofing, new landscaping on the outside, 
and new flooring, paint and paper on the 
inside. The kitchen and dining room are 
completely renovated and it's going to be 
different eating here without the fear of 
getting ptomaine. We hope there'll be 
details and pictures in the next Signet. 
We're really proud of all the work that 
Tom Falvey, our House Manager, has 
put into our new home. 

Fraternity life seems to be on a long 
awaited upswing not only at Delta Pent, 
but on the whole N. U. campus. Our 
rushing program will be much the same 
as last year, due to the successful initia- 
tion of more new brothers than any sea- 
son for quite a while. The program of 
soliciting our rush books in the dorms 
and our smoker-party with sports films 
seems to work best for us. 

The University has instituted a little 
sister-big brother system with fraternity 
men as the big brothers. There was a 
wild dash to get the names of Frosh 
girls for little sisters, it's too bad so many 
of us were disappointed how they turned 
out!! Some have really become interested 
in helping us out and a formal Phi Sig 
Little Sister program is underway.

standing pledges with several additions

footing after four disappointing years.

of the greatest ever! The brothers of Phi 
Pentaton gained 13 new men, which 
proved that fraternities are once again on 
the upswing. Rush at Phi Pentaton was 
successful because everyone was out for 
one purpose. RUSH!! The Sisters of the 
chapter served as hostesses and proved 
to be a great asset in Rush. Our Pref- 
erence Party was held at one of Tucson's 
finest resort hotels and proved to be an 
outstanding night for all attending. 

Phi Sigs on the U. of A. campus are 
gaining control over student government. 
Allen Brailey is a member of the Appro- 
priations Board, Student Senate, and Con- 
certs Chairman. Mike Passante, a fine 
Arts Senator, was elected to University 
Relations, Trial Board and Absences 
Committee. Edward Otero also a student 
Senator, was just elected to the Pres- 
idents' Advisory Council and is Chairman 
of the Senate Aide Committee. Brother 
Grant Richmond was elected Chain Gang 
Secretary and Brothers Hawke and Helley 
were elected Precinct Committeemen in 
the recent Tucson election. 

The jocks of the house are pledges Al 
Kampmeyer, who is on the Cross Coun- 
try Team, and Bill Fowler who is on the 
University of Arizona Swimming Team. 
The annual Pledge-Active Football Game 
saw the defeat of the pledge class. The 
actives made the only touchdown in the 
entire game — final score 6-0. 

Our newly founded Little Sisters Or- 
ganization, "The Signettes," have really 
put out a lot for the chapter and all the 
brothers are hoping to increase their 
number in the near future.

Eastern Michigan University 

""Phe members of Chi Pentaton send 
A greetings to all. 

A lot has changed here in recent 
months.. Our chapter is a young group 
comprised of many sophomores and 
juniors with an optimistic look at the 
future. Hopefully we can soon "spread 
our wings". 

A visit was paid to us recently by 
Dan Carmody, national representative. 
Dan's visit was accepted warmly and I 
hope he learned as much about the 
Detroit Tigers as we did about the Boston 
Red Sox. Seriously, Dan demonstrated 
many ways of improving our chapter, and 
hopefully we can implement them soon 
to make his trip successful, and not be 
ideas scattered in the wind. Many thanks 
for your time and effort, Dan. 

On the sports scene, the Phi Sigs here 
are putting up a good showing for them- 
selves. In softball we are now in the first 
place playoffs, and golf is another sport 
chalked up, thanks to the superb play 
of D. Hal, J. C. , Wild Bill, and The Pro. 
Hopefully, the momentum will carry us 
through the year. 

A most notable loss was that of our 
houseparents, Craig and Linda Daniels. 
Last July they accepted positions as 
houseparents for thirteen mentally re- 
tarded children ranging from age twelve 
to fifteen. Good luck to you both in your 
new position!

Memphis State University 

TJraternal greetings from the broth- 
ers of Psi Pentaton. I am extremely 
pleased to announce that we have ob- 
tained a new house this past Spring. Phi 
Sigs are again implanted at Memphis 
State University— 438 South Highland. 
Our chapter has experienced a revitali- 
zation and a much closer knit BROTH- 
ERHOOD since being together after the 
loss of two houses over the past year 
plus one third of our membership. Along 
with our firm foundation of a roof over 
our heads came the re-forming of our 
Little Sisters of the Triple T's. At 
present we have within our ranks seven 
Little Sisters to help bring Psi Pentaton 
to greater heights. These are: Phyllis 
Cline, Paula Duke, Ellen Early, Theresa 
Early, Linda Freeman, Doris Griffin, and 
Becky Hall. We take great pride in the 
work our Little Sisters have been doing 
this Summer. From the proceeds of their 
successful car washes, the brothers re- 
ceived new furnishings for our living 

This past Spring Carnagras was held 
again at Memphis State. Phi Sig domi- 

Porlying at Psi Pentaton 

nated the event with the presence of our 
booth, which produced both a profit and 
fun for all the brothers. Also in order 
to keep abreast with community action, 
Psi Pentaton sold tickets and promoted 
the Danny Thomas Memphis Golf Clas- 
sic. This led to fun, profit, and more rec- 
ognition for the chapter. Psi Pentaton 
also made itself felt in the area of 
SCHOLARSHIP at Memphis State. 
Brother Tom Stavropoulos made away 
with the National Sojourners Award, 
given by the Air Force R.O.T.C. This 
was for the outstanding cadet for dem- 
onstrating Americanism throughout the 
past year. 

Psi Pentaton is presently in the middle 
of a successful Rush this Fall. At this 
moment we have added four new 
pledges to our ranks, and feel this is 
only the beginning of our movement to 
expand our Phi Sig Brotherhood. This 
week we are happy to have Chapter 
Consultant James Borgan with us. Our 
chapter hopes to be able to plug in many 
of his suggestions into our organization 
and pledge program. His fresh ideas have 
generated much excitement in Psi Pen- 
taton. Our newly elected executive board 
plans great strides for the Fall Semester.

Bethel College 

Rest wishes for the coming year are 
sent from the brothers of Phi Sig's 
Omega Pentaton chapter on Bethel Cam- 

We are starting the year off in high 
spirits. The football intramurals are about 
to begin and we are hoping to come out 
on top. 

We have a great outlook for future 
pledges and one social has already been 
held with a fine attendance. The annual 
smoker date is set, signs are up and we 
look forward to adding new members to 
our brotherhood. 

The brothers have an added honor this 
year, in the fact that Omega Pentaton's 
President. Mike Ladd, is also President 
of Bethel's IFC-ISC. 

Brother Chuck Matthews and wife 
Janie, a Little Sister, have a new arrival 
— their first, a daughter. Tracey Lynn. 

Little Sisters of the Triple T's at Psi Pentaton, 
Memphis State, in front of House 

Brother Curt Jackson was married dur- 
ing the summer. He was our Secretary 
last year. 

During the summer Brother Henry 
Dunn and wife, Ann, also a Little Sister, 
held a Phi Sig social. Brothers and 
sisters came to Towanda, Pennsylvania 
from New York, New Jersey. Tennessee 
and Pennsylvania.

Susquehanna University 

f* reetings to all Phi Sigs from Delta 
^-* Hexaton Chapter at Susquehanna 
University. We welcome you back from 
summer vacation and wish you all luck 
for this academic year. 

Term I commenced with an air of ac- 
ademic glory as our chapter received the 
scholarship trophy at opening convoca- 
tion. Brothers Braband, Downs, Kramm, 
Lancione, Pivarnik, Schaeberle, and 
pledge Bassett were cited as university 
scholars for their academic achievements 
during the past year. 

Our new pledges for term I are: Jim 

Fall, 1972 


Ailing, Jerry Bassett, David Craig, Chris 
Evans, Jeff Hunt, Don Schade, and Ben 
Steiner. Under the stern hand of Brother 
Harold our rush program has been con- 
siderably intensified. We hope to make 
this the best rush yet. 

We are in the process of applying for 
a new orphan through the Christian 
Children's Fund. Our former orphan from 
Brazil is now privately sponsored by 
Brother Alumnus McCartney. 

The month of September has seen our 
annual "Splendor in the Straw" which 
turned out to be a huge success. After 
the hayrides an evening of food and drink 
was enjoyed by all. With football in the 
air the brothers have begun practice un- 
der the capable coaching of Brother 

Plans are being made to make a trip 
to Eastmann School of Music in Roches- 
ter, N.Y. in March. Brother Alumnus 
Strawser is giving a composition recital 
in honor of Delta Hexaton Chapter.

Nicholls State University 

e at Nicholls State University salute 
our fellow brothers across the coun- 

try. We also would like to thank all the 
brothers for their overwhelming cards 
and letters wishing us luck here at 
Nicholls State. Presently we have a total 
membership of thirty-three, seventeen re- 
maining actives from last semester and 
sixteen new members. Lynn Moore, our 
president, attended the Region III Con- 
clave this past August in Atlanta. He 
found new ideas and learned a great deal 
about fraternity organization. Man to 
man contact, which was stressed at the 
meetings, was instrumental in almost 
doubling our membership. 

In our short existence we have man- 
aged to get a good foothold on fraternity 
life. We had an effective rush program, 
play all sports in intramurals, have a 
community project in the planning stages, 
and have a Little Sisters organization 

At the very beginning of this semester 
we were fortunate enough to be visited 
by some of our brothers from Texas. 
We appreciated their visit and welcome 
any of our brothers here in Louisiana. 
We have lovely women, well seasoned 
food, and a great bunch of guys.

^■The President's Message 

AS WE BEGIN formulating elaborate plans for our Centennial celebration, 
which will be climaxed with our Forty-fourth General Convention at Amherst, 
Mass. in August, I am reminded of the interesting account of the first anniver- 
sary of our founding, as told by Frank Prentice Rand in his 7873-7923 History. 
Quoting a portion of Frank's story of that event: 

"At the end of the first fraternal year, at an anniversary gathering which 
lasted until three o'clock in the morning, Brother (Jabez William) Clay . . . the 
chapter's first president . . . gave an address, as follows: 

'A little more than one year since half a dozen members of the class of 
'75, believing in the advantages of college secret societies and not wishing to 
join any then in existence, resolved to start a new one. After much thought 
and many deliberations, on the 15th of March 1873, they bound themselves 
together by solemn oaths under the name T^ J. 

'To-night we are gathered here to celebrate the anniversary of that event 
and to commemorate the progress made during the first four quarters. During 
this time our numbers have doubled; our prosperity has been unexampled; 
our society has continually gained respect and advanced in position; our 
members have engaged, often as leaders, in whatever maintains the reputa- 
tion of the college or advances the interests of her students. By these means 
they have shown themselves worthy of a brother's position in this the strongest 
(bond) and of societies the most secret'. 

"After enumerating the more important events of the period, he concluded 
with this final paragraph which is of great interest: 

'When reviewing the past I should not fail to notice the introduction of 
literary entertainments, which supply a long felt want, and will, it is to be 
hoped, add much to our future usefulness. In this as in all other duties it should 
be the aim of each to do the part assigned to him in a manner creditable to 
himself and honorable to the Society, remembering that he who works the hard- 
est will be the most benefited and have the greatest reward' ". 

One cannot help wondering how many of us more than 40,000 Phi Sigs, living 
today a century later, have profited by the excellent advice Clay gave us that 
first anniversary. He and his five colleagues surely laid down the guide lines 
for a great fraternal order— one now about to begin its second century as one 
of the leaders in the Greek-lettet worMT .

founding ceremony took place. The granite slab was placed there in 1923. Old 
North College was torn down and replaced by Machmer Hall in the early 60'$ and 
the SHRINE was built into the wall of the entrance, where it appears today.

Inducted November 11, 1972 

In Philadelphia, Pa. 

T a Salle College derives its name from the found- 
•*-' er of the teaching brotherhood, John Baptiste de 
La Salle. Often described as the "Father of Modern 
Pedagogy," he first introduced the system of one 
teacher instructing a number of students of the same 
age, all using the same textbook. 

The college was founded on March 20, 1863, by a 
group of religious and laymen. The nucleus for the new 
college was the Academy conducted by the Christian 
Brothers at 1419 N. Second Street in Philadelphia. In 
1867 the college moved downtown to a site in center 



city at Juniper and Filbert Streets. Outgrowing th; 
location, La Salle moved to Broad Street and bega 
in 1882 a forty-three-year stay at the Bouvier Mansic 
at 1240 N. Broad Street. 

In 1929, the expanding college made its last mov

historic Belfield Farm, once the home of Americap

Just before the War ended, La Salle's enrollmeiii 
was ninety students. A year later the campus w< main 
bulging with twelve hundred veterans and a ne: 
chapter in La Salle's history had begun. In meetin it 
the post-war demand for education, La Salle becarr 
virtually a new college.

La Salle College Library (left) and Science Center 


• ermantown is the site of beautiful old homes and 
emorable locations dating to Revolutionary times. 
First of the post-war buildings was the library. This 
odern climate controlled structure is already cramped 

: >r space with a collection of one hundred seventy 
lousand volumes and periodical files of some nine 

: ~ undred journals. 

The College Union, dedicated in 1959, a great curv- 

' ig structure enclosing a portion of the stadium, was 
' ext to be built at a cost of $2 million. The Union is 
robably the busiest place on campus. Here one can 
it a meal, get a haircut, purchase books, see a per- 
irmance by a visiting celebrity, listen to a concert 
i the Music Room, or perhaps, even meet his future 

*t ife at a dance in the ballroom. 

The $2.5 million Science Center, with its vast walls 
; white marble, which contrasts even more sharply 
ith the older, predominantly brick buildings was 
pened in 1960. Inside are the well-equipped labora- 
>ries and lecture rooms so necessary to a vital science 

La Salle's residence halls which were first occupied 
l 1966 are slightly removed from the busy classroom 
eas. Were it not for a few signs, one might easily 
listake them for an apartment development. In them- 
lves they are a small city of eight hundred students, 
'ho share an experience of living together and learn- 
ig what constitutes college life. 

La Salle College is a group of buildings — brick, 
larble, limestone — situated on a hill overlooking 
lister Woods. But, it is also a great deal more. It is 
le embodiment of several great educational traditions: 
le American tradition of educating men in the foun- 
ations and spirit of democracy and the roots of 
'estern civilization; the La Sallian tradition of dedi- 
ated teaching and concern for the individual, dating 
ack to John Baptiste de La Salle; and the Catholic 
adition of striving for the perfection of one's God- 
iven intellectual powers.

The Zeta Hexaton Chapter house at La Salle College 


In the fall semester of 1962, Beta Alpha Lambda 
was conceived on the La Salle College campus 
amid much controversy. The fraternity system at 
La Salle had reached new depths in membership and 
morale. Many members of the college community had 
stated publicly that they had doubts as to the future 
of La Salle fraternities in the next ten years. It is with 
great pride that an answer can be made to those 
skeptics of the past. Over the past ten years Beta 
Alpha Lambda has grown to its present strength and 
has obtained many laurels for its efforts. Therefore, 
on her Tenth Anniversary and on the great occasion of 
petitioning the Grand Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa for 
chapter status within the upcoming Centennial Year, 
a recounting must be made to show the major achieve- 
ments of Beta Alpha Lambda, so that her sons might 
be deemed worthy of being adopted into the Brother- 
hood of Phi Sigma Kappa. 

The original group from which Beta Alpha Lambda 
sprung was an unorganized, informal social club, 
which was not recognized on La Salle's campus. It is 
regretful that there are no records of this period. Those 
alumni who were involved at that time recall only that 
it was purely a social organization, whose membership 
was restricted to the founders. The exact date of the 
conversion from a club to a fraternity is also lost in 
the past, because the informal structure of the club 
was carried over into the fraternity. 

The record began in January 1964, when Beta 
Alpha Lambda was formally recognized as a frater- 
nity on the campus. A quote from one of the early 
documents will show the reader the attitude on campus 
and the efforts of the founding members to acquire 
recognition : 

"We desire recognition by the Student Council 

inter, 1973 

(A) There is an existing need for another social 
fraternity on campus as recognized by the Stu- 
dent Council resolution of December 17, 1963. 

(B) We feel that the fraternity can be of value 
to the College and the Community. 

(C) We also believe that the fraternity is of value 
to its members and we wish to insure its con- 
tinued existence." 

The statement made above has been a guiding force 
for the fraternity since its formal recognition as well 
as its principles of Brotherhood, Accretion and Loyal- 
ty. The members have actively participated in collegi- 
ate and community affairs, i.e. in college governing, 
social and special bodies and in the national charity 
drives and neighborhood organizations. 

Shortly after the recognition of Beta Alpha Lambda, 
she became very active and saw the need for an Inter- 
fraternity Council, which she co-founded in 1960. It 
was through the new Council that her members ad- 
vanced into more responsible offices on campus and 
where she first came in contact with the national frater- 
nity system. Throughout the two-year period of 1967- 
1968 she searched diligently for the national fraternity 
with which to affiliate and insure her continued exist- 
ence. 1969 was the year in which the Grand Chapter of 
Phi Sigma Kappa granted colony status to us. Not 
content to rest, we strove forward, fighting the setbacks 
of poor finances and low membership until the new 
colony had acquired the first on-campus fraternity 
house in La Salle's history in January 1971. There 
are many relatively minor accomplishments to which 
plaques and trophies will attest, but none was as great 
as when Beta Alpha Lambda, the La Salle College 
Colony received its charter as a chapter in Brotherhood 
of Phi Sigma Kappa. 


Beta Alpha Lambda Inducted 

Local Beta Alpha Lambda at LaSalle College wa 
inducted as Zeta Hexaton chapter by a ritual tear 
from Eta Pentaton chapter at Drexel University 
December 1 1 . The ceremony was superbly performei 
in the Union on the LaSalle campus, under th 
supervision of Brothers Fred Nesbitt (Region II V.P.) 
Rick Snowdon (Executive Director) and Bert Browi 
(Signet Editor). 

Following the formal induction, Brother Nesbitt in 
stalled the new chapter officers and aided by Brothe 
Brown, instructed the chapter on the esoteric worl 
and fraternity operation procedures. 

Then everyone, including Little Sisters and othe 
dates, found a ride to the famous Inn of the Four Fall __ 
in Conshohocken for the traditional induction banque 
. . . and a delicious one it was. Brother Nesbitt pre 
sented the charter to the new chapter and Bert Browi 
offered a few words of . . . well, we hope it turnec 
out to be "wisdom". 

On two points there was universal agreement 
we had taken in a fine new chapter and the Drexe 
brothers had performed most creditably, as the induct^ 
ing team. Phi Sig can be proud on both counts. 




Ever since my initiation as Chapter Treasurer 
have been faced with the same question over anc 
over from newly inducted Brothers — "Why must 
have a fraternity badge?" My answer to them was tha 
it was a National Headquarters requisite and no othei 
explanation was given 

Lately many brothers have decided that "pinning" is 
outdated and are then stuck with a badge they do no; 
want. The same applies to those brothers who have 
never been pinned or those guys who have somehow 
had theirs returned. 

Our National Headquarter policy of mandator} 
purchase of badges forces the new inductee into al 
purchase he may not be in a position to make. Thel 
optimum situation would be that, if a brother desiresjMj 
a badge, he should be allowed to order one on arm 
optional basis 

The whole topic of mandatory badge purchase has 
lessened the faith of our new inductees and prospec- 
tive pledges.

at Dayton, Ohio 

N 1 849 Rev. Fr. Leo Meyer left France to carry on 
missionary work in the American frontier. When he 

ached Cincinnati a cholera epidemic was raging, 
pon Fr. Meyer's offer of his services, Bishop John 
urcell sent him to Emmanuel Church in Dayton. 

In Dayton Fr. Meyer, a member of the religious 
:der, Society of Mary, met John Stuart. Mr. Stuart, 

scion of the royal family of Scotland, was selling 
s American holdings in order to return to Europe, 
iter receiving permission from the society's founder, 
r. Chaminade, Fr. Meyer agreed to buy the "Dew- 
;rry Farm." 

The selling price was 12,000 dollars, but John 
tuart accepted Fr. Meyer's St. Joseph medal as down 
ayment and returned to Scotland. March 19, 1850 
property changed hands. 

The new library at the Univ. of Dayton next to the old library 

Sherman Hall at Univ. of Dayton viewed from John F. Kennedy 
Student Union 

Fr. Meyer renamed the self-sufficient farm, "Naz- 
areth." July 1, 1850 St. Mary's Institute was opened as 
a boarding school with 14 students in the farmhouse. 
In 1854 a fire destroyed everything closing St. Mary's 
until 1857. By 1860 the enrollment had reached 100. 

Until 1880 all students received primary and sec- 
ondary education. In 1882 St. Mary's was empowered 
to grant college degrees. The first was a Bachelor of 
Science issued in 1891. The name was changed to St. 
Mary's College in 1912. 

In 1920 Ohio granted a revised Charter and the 
school became the University of Dayton. The elemen- 
tary school closed in 1921, and the secondary school 
shut down four years later. 

Enrollment passed the thousand point in 1937, two 
years after it had become coed. Expansion continued. 
There were two great boom periods in recent history. 
The first was the post WWII boom that most colleges 
in the nation felt. The second occurred in the mid- 

The University of Dayton is a medium-sized, pri- 
vate, coeducational school located in this medium- 
sized, mid-western city. The University is ranked fifth 

Vinter, 1973 

in size among the nation's Catholic schools. There are 
seventy-five hundred enrolled undergraduates of which 
over half are from out of state. The graduate studies 
program has fifteen hundred students. There are forty 
departments of academic study which confer twenty- 
nine degrees. The University of Dayton includes the 
College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business 
Adminstration, the School of Education, the School of 
Engineering, and the Technical Institute. 

The University of Dayton is located on a seventy-six 
acre hilltop campus in southern Dayton. A seventy- 
six acre west campus is located fifteen minutes from the 
main campus. This is primarily used for housing fresh- 
man men. The East campus includes Bergamo, the 
center of ecumenical study. Campus South functions 
as a coed apartment complex within walking distance 
of the main campus. 

The University of Dayton operates in a pluralistic 
environment while holding that there exists a harmony 
of truths between those divinely revealed and those 
rationally uncovered. In an atmosphere of academic 
freedom the university strives for four essential goals: 
teaching, research, the rendering of public service, 
and serving as a critic of society. 

The University of Dayton is not only interested in 
the dissemination of information with a Christian world- 
view, but also in the social and personal development 
of its family-style community's members. As a small 
university there existed no needs to be filled by fra- 
ternities other than as honor societies and professional 
frats. In 1947 a chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha was es- 
tablished in the post-war boom. This chapted died in 
the early 1950's. The fraternity system was non-ex- 
istent until the 1960's. 

In the early sixties fraternities started off-campus. 
Their numbers and size grew as the university ex- 
panded rapidly during that decade. The university 
took repressive action against these underground or- 
ganizations. The greeks flourished in spite of university 
action, which resulted in the break-up of frat houses in 
mid-semester under threat of academic expulsion for 

By 1966 the university reversed its position and 
entered a year of coexistence with the greeks. The 
fraternities neither solicited university recognition nor 
were they offered it. In 1967 the situation took a turn 
for the better. 

That year the President of the newly formed Stu- 
dent Government was a fraternity member. When the 
Student Government Constitution took effect, granting 
the Student Congress, among other powers, the right 
to grant university recognition to student organizations, 
the greeks surfaced. The I.F.C. was formed with the 
seven existing social fraternities receiving charter status 
and university recognition. A year later in the sum- 
mer of 1968 the university hired the present Ass't. 
Dean of Students, Dick McCauley, whose sole job was 
to be the administration's coordinator of fraternities.

The presence and participation of the greek fra 
ternities, though relatively new, has been beneficiall; 
felt by the campus community. They act as a tre 
mendous source of organized manpower for univer 
sity and student government projects. The communit 
service activities of these groups engender a positiv 
university image.

Delta Chi Delta 

(Servant of Servants) 



On April 6, 1972, a group of seven students (Johi 
Augustin, Jere Brown, Bob Dandrea, Davi 
Furry, Bob Seubert (first president), Don Skelton 
and Charles Sullivan) who were dissatisfied with thi 
existing social system founded a new fraternity at thi 
University of Dayton. Beginning as one of the firs 
fraternities on campus, Delta Chi Delta had growi 
and flourished, abiding by its constitutional purpose 
". . . to maintain and improve its members througl 
fraternal, religious, educational, social and cultura 

Membership in the fraternity followed after a pledge 
period which was meant to actuate a pledge's identifii 
cation with the ideals of the brothers; not a pledge se| 
off from the rest of the fraternity. Pledging consistec 
mainly of activities intending to build character anc| 
pride in Delta Chi Delta. Constructive pledge project; 
helped to develop teamwork and a realization of the 
meaning of individual responsibility. 

Brothers of Delta Chi Delta were active in campus 
functions and prided themselves in their teamwork ir 
such areas as athletics and service projects. 

Monthly social functions were scheduled in additior 
to the annual homecoming activities. Great pride was 
observed in their annual Delta Chi Delta Founders 
Day celebration as well as the annual Wine Festival. 

Scholastic ability was highly honored and excellence 
in this field was rewarded each semester. It was with 
great pride and high esteem that the colors of blue 
and red were worn. 



Since becoming a colony of Phi Sigma Kappa in 
larch of '72, the brothers have strived to maintain 
pot only the traditions of their old local, Delta Chi 
Delta, but have continued to stress Delta Chi Delta's 
original constitutional purpose: ". . . to maintain and 
Improve its members through fraternal, religious, edu- 
cational, social, and cultural activities." 


Eta Hexaton Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa was 
installed at the University of Dayton on Novem- 
ber 18, 1972. The new brothers of Phi Sig as well as 
:he induction team, and visiting National Officers and 
brothers were caught up in the atmosphere of the week- 

The excitement and anticipation built up rapidly 
all week. Friday was truly the night before. That eve- 
ning the test was taken, and the preliminary mandate 

Saturday morning the brothers of the colony met with 
the National Officers and the induction team from the 
lUniversity of Kentucky Chapter at Miriam Hall. Eight 
hours later we emerged as brothers of National Phi 
(Sigma Kappa. The brothers of Phi Deuteron per- 
formed the induction ceremony excellently. Bert 
Brown was happy to find that in addition to the 
(induction team knowing the ceremony so well, our 
brothers knew the Phi Sig songs. 

Jim Borgan came in Wednesday before to iron out 
the smaller details. He was joined Friday by the 
Executive Director, Rick Snowdon, and "Mr. Phi Sig", 
Bert Brown. Jim had worked with us whenever we 
needed him over the previous twenty months. His 
knowledge and tips had been an invaluable service 
10 us.

Delta Chi Delta as a local fraternity had been a 
small yet dynamic fraternity. We were not highly 
structured in our organization. Our dues were low. 
Although we lost a lot of interfraternity sporting 
events, we always participated. That was a part of 
our fraternity philosophy. 

Phi Sigma Kappa we found to be everything we had 
looked for in a national fraternity. They were social, 
national, well organized, helpful, not extravagantly 
expensive, and not discriminatory in any manner. 

We petitioned Phi Sigma Kappa for colony status 
after several fruitful exchanges of investigative corre- 
spondence. The National officers inspected our group 
for everything from stability, finances, growth poten- 
tial, even our filing cabinets. March 6, 1971 we were 
officially accepted as a colony. 

A financial plan was established. We aimed to be 
inducted after a year, in the winter of 1972. The finan- 
cial plan was followed diligently. Our finances fell short 
as our expectations of several money-making projects 
were over-estimated. We finally petitioned the National 
for chapter status on August 1 , 1972. This action came 
after we were certain we were financially sound, and 
able to absorb the expenses entailed. 

We finally established November 18th as our induc- 
tion date. We lost our hall four weeks from induction 
due to the date change. Both the band and the banquet 
catering arrangements were shifted satisfactorily. We 
had everything ready but a hall. On Tuesday, Novem- 
ber 14th, the Local #775 I.U.E. union hall was 
formally engaged for that Saturday night. 

Following the impressive induction ceremony on 
campus, all the brothers and Little Sisters converged 
on the Union Hall. In two hours we had cleaned, 
mopped, set up, and decorated for the evening. 

The formal dinner was followed by speeches and 
the presentation of the charter by past President and 
Signet Editor Bert Brown to Ron Petrongolo. Invita- 
tions had been sent to all campus dignitaries and other 
campus organizations. Brothers from Purdue and 
Akron were also present. The national officials along 
with the induction team and their dates attended. Four 
hours of music and dancing capped the evening. 

Winter, 1973 

Or How to Get the Team Healthy Again 

Kappa Tetarton ... it has been sick lately. But 
thanks to many, it has recovered. How does a 
strong chapter, which it once was, begin to shake at 
the foundations and try to commit suicide? It starts 
within. It started with a house which suffered many 
rush failures from over 60 members in 1969 to 38 
in 1971. Last year we had a total of 21 graduating 
seniors, and 1 1 continuing brothers. Our situation was 
unique in the fact that the university owned our house. 
It made a request that all fraternities and sororities 
maintain a 35 person occupancy in the houses. Things 
really started to explode. The brothers began to forget 
just what a fraternity was about; that in order for 
one to reap the benefits, one must also share in the 
work to make those benefits possible. The seniors were 
interested in having a last year fling with which to 
remember their college days, and the undergrads 
decided that they shouldn't be the only ones to have 
all the fun. Rules — abolished, control — very little, 
parties — why not, grades — some yes, some no, house 
dues — the frat won't be here next year anyway. Yes, 
Kappa Tetarton was in trouble. 

Spring quarter the chapter decided to move off 
campus. So a team was set up to find out about loans, 
renting, leasing, buying, security, where, when, how, 
why. . . . One week — nothing . . . two weeks — 
nothing . . . nothing! Why? No one seemed interested. 

Then one of the most important decisions of Kappa 
Tetarton's history was made. Should we stay in the 
university-built fraternity housing complex? Most of 
the brothers complained that they wanted to move off 
campus. But the decision was made, and everyone 
helped or they got out. Bills had to be paid — or 

Our Adviser will help. What Adviser? A new Ad- 
viser? With helpful correspondence with National we 
set our course. By the time we got this far it was the 
end of Spring. The seniors were gone, but so was our 
chapter house. And with it went the wood paneling, 
the wall to wall carpeting, the drapes, and all the 
time, energy and money that was spent by many 
brothers before us. 

Summer quarter was a very serious time of plan- 
ning. National sent their advisers who worked with 
us. An Alumni Corporation came into existence, 
and with its help we received permission from the 
university to move our chapter into another house. 

Fall quarter Kappa Tetarton's doors opened mod- 
estly. The membership that filled the house was its 
president, myself, and its vice president, Howard 
Kravitz. The two of us with our adviser, Mr. Carl 
Harris, to whom we owe so much for our success, dug 
our feet in and worked. Howy and I worked as new 
student leaders for the university. Working with the 
new students we formulated a pledge class of 8. 

With personal recommendations from these people 
we sent personal letters containing information abou 
Phi Sigma Kappa and invited them to rush. Througl 
continuous effort of our pledges, combined with thesi 
letters we pledged 5 more men. With a third rush w< 
pledged 4 more. We also re-activated an old pledge 
This gave us a total membership of 20. 

We have already started planning winter quarte 
RUSHES, parties, programs, etc. Our goal is 20 nev 
members for this quarter to be duplicated durinj 
Spring quarter. We have even started our Little Siste 
Program, and had our annual Christmas party wit! 

We have sent out over 60 letters to our alumni 
with moderate results. With this new membership, i 
expresses its responsibility to them. We would like t( 
send "News Letters," have Founders' Day, and Alum 
ni Day for them. Our addresses are mostly out-dated 
and therefore we urge all of our alumni to send us ai 
up-to-date address. We would like to give them tht, 
chance to meet and talk with old brothers and to mee 
the new ones. So please send your addresses anc, 
spread the word. 

I would like to say that National has helped in even, 
way possible to ensure the success of Kappa Tetarton': 
revival. It would personally like to thank Bill Aaron 
Rick Snowdon, and the two National consultants foij 
their help. They're one of the reasons when you say 
"why National" — you say, "of course."

A Letter to the Editor 
a Proud and Grateful Phi 





Dear Brother Bert, 

... I will return to school in January and $270 ol 
my scholarship ($500) from the Phi Sigma Kappa 
Foundation will go towards tuition; the remainder 
will be used for room and board at the Chi Tetarton 

I would like to thank all those involved with th 
Foundation for awarding this scholarship to me. It is 
very important, because I am putting myself through 
school without the aid of my parents. 

Receiving this scholarship is another one in the long 
list of benefits I have received since joining Phi Sigma 
Kappa. I pledged in 1970 as a first semester freshman, 
and the fraternity here at Western (Michigan) has not 
been a home away from home, but it has been my 
home (period). The things I have gained are almost 
unimaginable — companionship, social contacts, broth- 
erhood, responsibility, leadership, and other things; 
too numerous to describe ... it is truly my pleasure 
to be living at the house here at Western. I thank you 
again not only for the scholarship, but for all the 
wonderful experiences Phi Sigma Kappa has given me

The Omega Deuteron Snow Party— 
A White Christmas 

A white Christmas in Los Angeles? For the Omega 
*• Deuteron Chapter, "White Christmas" came a bit 
arly — on December 9th, the date of our famed 21st 
nnual Snow Party. For the occasion, thirty tons of 
pecially shaved ice was spread in our large patio, 
nd a toboggan run was constructed from the second 
oor landing. The novelty of "SNOW" in Los Angeles 
lelped to inspire lengthy snowball fights. 

But the evening's enjoyment was not limited to the 
Inow. A band played in our dining room, and water- 
eds were set up in our living room, for lounging 
tround the fireplace. 

Doug Cramoline made chapter history before the 
tart of the party by being the first Phi Sig ever to ski 
town the steep, narrow toboggan run. Fortunately, he 
nanaged to do so without injury, and enjoyed the 
jarty with the rest of us.

for annual snow party

vention and Centennial celebration? For every 
loyal Phi Sig this will be an opportunity of a life 
time. Don't miss it. make this trip to Amherst the 
best vacation ever. 

Delta Pentaton Reports on Chapter House Improvements 

r_J ere at Delta Pentaton contractors have finally 
r- -*■ completed the long awaited OK for renovations 
p the three-story colonial New England house we call 
home. Thanks to Tom Falvey, our House Manager, 
lumerous contractors were called in to estimate the 
:ost of the much needed repairs, such as new roofs, 
:omplete kitchen remodelling, two new porches, a new 
>athroom, a new front door and many more equally 
mportant projects. 

With the combined effort of Tom, Dean John Jor- 
lan, our adviser, and a few concerned alumni, a size- 
ible loan of $20,000 was obtained from a Boston 
>ank at what we feel is the best rate of interest 

After 18 months of investigation and extensive com- 
nunication with a cooperative Northeastern University 
Building Department, the loan was arbitrated and 
obtained from Professor Bateson, Vice President of 
Business at Northeastern, by Dean Jordan. North- 

eastern's lawyer, Mr. Boyd, kindly handled the legal 
matters for us. 

Since the completion of the renovations we have 
noticed an increase in the number of brothers desiring 
to live in, where in the past many chose to live in 
apartments that are nearer to the University. This past 
Fall term showed an increase of 100 r r over the previ- 
ous Spring figures for residence. 

Other additional benefits have also been observed 
in our rush program. This fall our number of pledges 
has more than tripled over the same period last year. 
We feel that the improvements to our house have had 
a positive effect here, in that Freshmen are nowadays 
rather selective in choosing housing for their upperclass 
years and look favorably on a well kept house. 

We would like to thank all our Alumni and friends 
who devoted their efforts and time to our House Reno- 
vation Project and invite both our Alumni and other 
Phi Sigs that might be in the area to drop in and say 
hello! — by Don Le Clair, President

Lambda Pentaton's Answer to the 
Identity Problem 

Prior to 1970, Lambda Pentaton at Ferris State 
was just another fraternity out of 15 on campus. To 
most incoming freshmen (who are a majority of all 
pledges), there was no way of remembering us Phi 
Sigs from any of the other fraternity names. After a 
school-wide T.G., most non-Greeks couldn't remember 
our name — only "Phi something", or "Sigma Phi 
something", or something like that. 

To change this identity problem, we decided to have 
a symbol that all people . . . not just other Greeks on 
campus . . . could remember. The symbol came in the 
summer of 1970 when we "adopted" the title of the 
chapter Alumni Newsletter, "The Geek", from Upsi- 
lon Tetarton Chapter at Rochester Institute. 

The hairy little man you see in the pictures is easier 
to remember when seen, than knowing the difference 
between Phi Sigma Kappa, Phi Sigma Epsilon, Sigma 
Phi Epsilon, etc., etc., to most non-Greeks. 

To be effective, we saturated the campus with 
"Geek" material; shirts, phone directories, bumper 
stickers, buttons, and signs were made showing the 
little man with our Greek letters on his chest. 

A venture like this isn't expected to have everyone 
on campus raving about Phi Sigma Kappa. But com- 
ments from independents such as "Oh yea, your frater- 
nity's the one with the little man," do seem encourag- 
ing as getting us across to the student body not only 
PR-wise — but most important of all^->-RUSHwise!

"Why Cottege?". . . 
Some Centennial Reflections 

by Dr. James E. Sefton, Xi P (Fac.) 

Former Chapter Adviser and Associate Professor of History 

at San Fernando Valley State College 

Dr. James E. Sefton 

] A s Phi Sigma Kappa marks its hundredth anni- 
*»• versary, we are conscious of a natural time for 
reflection and reevaluation of goals and principles. To 
the question "Why a fraternity?" we respond by com- 
bining the words of the Founders with ideas derived 
from our own experience. The old, the original, is still 
valid; and the new, the present, urges itself upon us. 
Another question, "Why a college?" warrants a share 
in the reflective thoughts of this time. What commends 
itself about the nature of the institution within which 
the fraternity experience begins? 

To the undergraduate, the college "catalog" is a 
source both of satisfaction and of frustration, with its 
amalgam of information and rules discovered at the 
eleventh hour. To the historian a college catalog is a 
highly revealing social document. Catalogs of the 
1870's suggest much about what that society saw of 
value in a college education. The University of Ten- 

nessee noted in 1873: "One of the most pressing 
demands of the times is a more elevated and thorough 
education of the industrial classes. . . . The idea that 
only the clergyman, the physician, and the lawyer 
require higher instruction and mental training, while 
the farmer, the machinist, and the metallurgist may 
get on well enough with a limited education, has long 
since been proved false in principle and disastrous in 
results." According to Franklin and Marshall College, 
"A liberal education, in its very nature, regards not 
primarily any ends of business or professional work. 
It is not without reference to these as an ulterior 
object, since all true human culture must show itself 
to be at last practical in some way; but what it aims 
at immediately, and for the time being exclusively, is 
the cultivation of the mind for its own sake." 

These two statements reflect the disparate self- 
perceptions of a state university becoming increasingly 
concerned with "practical" education, and a small, 
privately-endowed "liberal arts" college. There were 
other views as well. A Baptist college in North Caro- 
lina could say, "It is believed that the tendency of the 
present modes of discipline at Wake Forest is to de- 
velop self-respect, self-control, and decided Christian 
manhood." The school of engineering at Dartmouth 
devised a curriculum "designed to prepare the capable 
and faithful student for the most responsible positions 

and the most difficult service." And in 1874 Texas 
Christian University, explaining its support of the novel 
idea of coeducation, observed: "The best test of a good 
school is that it intensifies the good qualities that pre- 
vail in the family. The organic dependence of one sex 
on the other is a fact that should not be forgotten or 
ignored in the methods of school keeping. The more 
of the family element you introduce into an institution 
of learning, the more successful it will be." 

It is an interesting commentary on our own times 
that many colleges see no need for a statement of 
purpose in their catalogs. Some, however, do have a 
clear self-perception, and announce it. Auburn Uni- 
versity, succinctly, dedicates itself to "developing 
graduates whose knowledge, intellectual discipline, and 
awareness of the morality of individual action will be 
manifest in service to their fellow man and to the 
state and nation." The University of Missouri at Rolla 
pledges "to serve competent and thoroughly qualified 
students at all levels from Missouri and the region, 
and to provide for them the intellectual stimulation, 
associations and experiences essential to their develop- 
ment into distinguished professionals in engineering, 
the sciences and the liberal arts." Students at the 
University of Kansas are challenged, among other 
things, "'to make a dispassionate study of the social, 
political, and economic forces which combine to give 
the modern world the appearance of such complexity." 
One institution speaks for itself as part of a general 
educational complex: "The purpose of Swarthmore 
College is to make its students more valuable human 
beings and more useful members of society. It shares 
this purpose with other educational institutions, for 
American education is a direct outgrowth of our demo- 
cratic principles." 

True — American education is leavened by our ideas 
of democracy, and that is the source both of its con- 
tinuity and its change. Comparison of the statements 
offered here suggests that there are some values which 
remain fairly constant, although they may from time 
to time be clothed in different semantic dress. Yet the 
founders, presidents, and faculties of nineteenth cen- 
tury colleges would find on their campuses today some 
ideas and considerations which would not have oc- 
curred to them a century ago. (Continued on page 16)

■you know fraternities aren't just for drinking 

•*• and partying and stuff," said Terry Cotton, a 
junior at the Rochester Institute of Technology. "They 
do a lot of good." 

Terry, who is from Victor, and 18 other young 
men who are pledging Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity are 
required to do two community service projects. 

Last week, they carried out their first one. They 
entertained and played with some 45 children at the 
Community Child Care Center. 

"We all wanted to work with kids," Cotton said, 
explaining how they chose the project. Beverly Koval, 
assistant director of the Voluntary Action Center of 
the Citizens Planning Council, helped them in the 

There was banjo, guitar and piano playing by the 
pledges as they led the children through several songs. 

Besides playing games with the children, they also s; 
around and talked to them individually. 

"We all had a good time," said Cotton, who is a 
accounting major at RIT. 

The pledges haven't chosen their second project ye 
But Cotton said they may decide to return to tri 
Community Child Care Center and help the staff mo\ 
from the temporary quarters in Trinity Emmanui

-MARCH 15, 1873- 

ro over 40,000 living college men this is a date 
which holds a world of meaning ... a date which 
marked the beginning of a heritage, destined to play a 
rofound role in the lives of each of these men who 
|ave consecrated themselves to a Brotherhood, first 
nown as T^r J. . . five years later as Phi Sigma Kappa. 
to that fateful night in a tiny room in Old North 
ollege at the Massachusetts Agricultural College (now 
le University of Massachusetts), Amherst, Mass., six 
ung sophomores — all from New England — gathered 
ound a mystic shrine and repeated unforgettable 
|ows on their sacred honor to be forever true to the 
ims, purposes and ideals of this new association, 
hese six men — all outstanding campus leaders — were 
seph Franklin Barrett, William Penn Brooks, Fred- 
rick George Campbell, Xenos Young Clark, Jebez 
illiam Clay and Henry Hague. The secret symbolism 
ley devised that night became the beacon light for 
hat turned out to be a new national fraternity. During 
e 100 years that followed it has never been altered; 
nd it never will be. 
On March 15 of this year Phi Sigma Kappa will 
ach its 100th anniversary. The event will be fittingly 
elebrated in Amherst, Mass., at the fraternity's Forty- 
uth General Convention August 7-11. During this 
rst century of its existence, it has been accepted on 
|he campuses of 127 Colleges and Universities from 
oast to coast and border to border. Thousands of its 
rothers have distinguished themselves in every field 
f endeavor . . . business, education, arts and sciences,

jtudents who took these vows since that memorable

Has the Tide Turned? 

,r p here is considerable evidence that after two or 
■*■ three very disappointing years for fraternities the 
jtide HAS turned and we can look forward to a brighter 
future in 1973. The downward drift in pledging seems 
to have been reversed with reported pledges thus far 
in this academic more than doubled over last year's 
figure during the same period. 

It is true that we still have too many chapters with 
too few members to operate comfortably. It is also 
true that we have lost several chapters which we could 
have saved with a little extra effort on the part of 
apathetic leaders. But there is rather clear evidence 
that there is a healthier attitude among the students 
toward fraternities on many college and university 
campuses. This is reflected in reports that many more 

Winter, 1973 

men have turned out for Rush this last Fall than for 
the last several years. 

Hence chapters should take advantage of this oppor- 
tunity to increase their membership, always remember- 
ing that at schools where Open Rush is permitted, 
there are many men, still not affiliated, who would 
make good Phi Sigs if they were offered the oppor- 
tunity. At such schools Rushing should be recognized 
as a year-round activity — not just for the hard-working 
Rush Committee but for the entire chapter.

of 85. Funeral services were held on Tuesday, January sec- 
ond, in Port Charlotte with the American Legion Post 1 10 
having a brief service beforehand, and with members of the 
World I Barracks 714 of Port Charlotte as honorary pall- 
bearers. Graveside services were held at Arlington National 
Cemetery on January 4, 1973. 

A native of Morris, Wood County, West Virginia, Brother

Remington Arms Plant, Bridgeport, Connecticut. In Septem- 
ber, 1917, he returned to military service and was ordered 
to Chaumont, France, on General Pershing's staff. His decora- 
tions include the French Legion of Honor, the Purple Heart, 
and meritorious citations from General Pershing and the 
President of the United States. 

He was honorably discharged November 18, 1919, as 
Lieutenant Colonel and then reentered private life. He was 
awarded several patents for improvements in ordnance and 
industrial devices. He was vice president and executive vice 
president of the United States Ordnance Company. He was 
a founder and life member of the American Ordnance Asso- 
ciation. Until his retirement eleven years ago he was pres- 
ident and principal owner of the Ess Instrument Company

Since his retirement to Port Charlotte he has been instru- 
mental in the founding and development of Port Charlotte 
University, of which he is a founding director. 

Brother Sheppard, his daughter, and granddaughter all 
hold degrees from West Virginia University, and he and his 
sister are members of the Emeritus Club and loyal supporters 
of the University. 

TThe Brothers at East Tennessee State University with the 
deepest regret wish to inform the Bond of the death of 
an outstanding member — Brother James A. Dugger. First 
Lieutenant James A. Dugger, Zeta Tetarton '68, was fatally 
wounded while honorably serving his country as a helicopter 
pilot in the Republic of South Vietnam on October 16, 1972. 
Jim was killed by mortar fire while helping wounded South 
Vietnamese soldiers into his helicopter. 

Being the outstanding Brother he was, Jim left our chapter 
a two thousand dollar life insurance policy. In his memory, 
we are starting a Jim Dugger Memorial Fund. If any Brother 
would like to donate any money to the fund, please make the 
checks out to The Jim Dugger Memorial Fund, in care of

Brother Dennis Howard Bowers (Omicron Deuteron '74) 
died on September 16, 1972 of injuries received in an auto- 
mobile accident outside of his hometown of Elba, Alabama. 
He was 20 years old. O.D. deeply mourns the loss of one of 
our best brothers. He shall always be remembered for his 
continual, contagious optimism, and the way he used his 
talents to relieve any tensions in the house. Brother Bowers 
was devoted a Phi Sig in the truest sense of the word. 

Why CoHege?- 
Some Centennial Reflections 

(Continued from page 13) 

Within the limitations of resources — neither de- 
manding what cannot be provided nor neglectfully 
wasting what is — each student should be able to attend 
college for his own reasons. Yet reasons he must have 
(or soon develop), else he merely spins his wheels. 
He may drive, intellectually, as if on a freeway 
toward a defined goal, or via the country roads, paus- 
ing at each intersection to consider, with the poet, the 
road not taken. What is perhaps most disappointing 
about too many students is the narrowness of their 
perception of college. It is not a panacea for all ills. 
It cannot do everything for students. It will not, in 
the starrily hopeful words of the valedictorians, open 
the world for the taking. But with the student's help 
it will do more things than students give it a chance 
to do; and if one's view of his surroundings, and espe- 
cially of himself, is not broader when he leaves than 
when he arrived, his two-dimensional diploma is more 
symbolic than he knows. "Why a fraternity?" is not a 
difficult question, and an appreciation of it does lead 
to rewards. "Why a college?" is not difficult either, 
and it can also lead to rewards. But first it has to be

it eta Chapter has been very busy 
Tr since September . . . with our Fall 
[tush. Since ten of our Brothers will be 

|raduating in June, a successful Rush is 

tnperative to the future of our house. 
■In the period from September to Decem- 
ller, we initiated two upper-classmen, and 

fledged eight freshmen; we have expec- 
fttions of pledging at least four or five 
jpore freshmen before the year is over. 
Jjo it appears that the future of our 
•Brotherhood is insured. We all worked 
ljard on Rush . . . especially Rush Chair- 
Ian and Chapter V.P. Bernie Carrick 
|| . . and it really paid off. 

I Two of our Brothers, Doug Wong and 
ltd Loeber, were studying abroad this 
least semester, and we are all looking 
[forward to their return to Union in Janu- 
llry.Ed spent the semester in France; 
fcoug was in Singapore. Welcome back! 
I For the past few weeks, many Brothers 
fjvere talking about the whole fraternity 
(going on a weekend trip. But as soon as 
live started talking about going away, it 
llvas already time for final exams. How- 
ftver. during the winter term, we have 
Ipefinite plans to go on a "sight-seeing" 
Irip to Canada, and a skiing trip to New 
tngland. (With all of the snow that we 
[get in Schenectady, it really isn't neces- 
sary to go to New England to ski — we 
could use the Union campus. But it'll be 
ft change of atmosphere, anyway.)

T~V eta's New Year's resolution: To 
justify our existence as an organiza- 
tion through positive contributions to 
campus and community. A dynamic set 
of officers will hopefully lead an inspired 
chapter to fulfill this resolution. We rec- 
ognize that we must fulfill it. 

Here's what's happening: Delta Foun- 
dation has hired a full-time fund raiser — 
our own Jim Meredith. Delta 1967 — to 
coordinate our chapter house renovation. 
He has worked diligently to give us 
some direction; we intend to give him all 
the support we can. and we know our 
alumni will. also. 

Our exterior painting is finished; new 
metal windows are installed. The bar 

has been renovated by the undergrads 
at our expense. We have volunteered to 
paint the interior of the Morgantown 
Public Library right after rush. Ah, rush 
— crucial!!

gave financial aid for our exterior paint- 
ing; (2) Brother Chris Schenkel, Delta

University of Maryland 

HT he month of December proved to be 
quite an adventure in brotherhood 
for Phi Sigma Kappa — Eta Chapter. On 
December 2, 1972 Eta Chapter hosted a 
party for three Phi Sig Chapters. Those 
attending were Psi (University of Vir- 
ginia), Epsilon Triton (American Univer- 
sity), and Eta Chapter. As an added 
attraction nine pledges from Northeast- 
ern (Delta Pentaton) showed up while 
on their away weekend. 

Following the big weekend party. Eta 
Chapter sponsored a Christmas party for 
retarded children. Five sororities and five 
fraternities also participated. Eta Chap- 
ter was paired with Gamma Phi Beta. 
Each pairing of fraternity and sorority 
were responsible for approximately thirty 
to thirty-five children. The children en- 
joyed refreshments while Santa Claus 
was flown in by helicopter and presented 
the children with Christmas gifts. Guest 
celebrities attending the party were 
Marvin Mandel, Governor of Maryland: 
Wilson Elkins, President of The Uni- 
versity of Maryland: and Charles Bishop, 
Chancellor of The University of Mary- 
land. College Park. The entire occasion 
was an outstanding success and Eta is 
now planning an Easter Egg Hunt for the 
same group of children. 

In general. Eta Chapter is continuing 
its strong rebuilding program. The living 
room is now finished and has been com- 
plimented as one of the best on campus. 
Also we are beginning Spring Rush which 
we hope will produce many fine pledges. 
Future plans, now being coordinated 
with national, are for Eta to sponsor a 
miniconclave for Region III on or about 
February 23rd or 24th. 

We wish everyone a successful spring 
semester and cordially invite any and all 
to visit our chapter.

Cor eight long weeks the brothers of 

Iota were on the rush. We needed a 
super idea to attract the attention of the 
new freshmen. The answer was in a 14- 
story steel tower being built by Stevens 
to test sewage disposal in apartment 
buildings. In the early hours of the morn- 
ing, a task force of 10 brothers climbed 
the tower and put up a billboard site sign 
advertising a smoker at the house. The 
turnout was fantastic and with our trip to 
Googy's bar in Greenwich Village we 
ended up with the biggest pledge class on 

Our Halloween party was as usual a 
smash and as always there were new 
ideas for costumes. The winner this year 
was a cute girl dressed up as an eggplant. 

Every winter we play capture the flag 
with the pledges, but this year we are 
giving the rules a once over, because last 
year it took us two hours to get the 
pledges' flag out of the Hudson River. 

In athletics on campus Jay Wolojhen 
has moved up to number 6 on varsity 
squash and Larry Lang is now number 3 
on varsity tennis. 

We are proud to announce that we 
have a new spirited chapter adviser. 
Bruce Chenoweth. 

We would like to have all brothers 
of Iota reunite and help us celebrate Phi 
Sig's 100th Anniversary on March 31st. 
Planned is a dinner dance at the magnifi- 
cent Stevens Center which overlooks the 
N.Y. skyline. All of our alumni will be 
receivinc invitations.

T J sing the advice of Brother Snowdon. 
Kappa Chapter put into service a 
revamped membership selection program. 
Thanks to a gung-ho effort from the 
brotherhood and the strict control of 
Brother Rush Chairman (now President) 
Pescatore, we proved that National's 
suggestions are indeed worthwhile. In 
three weeks time, we pledged a class 
of sixteen worthy men, thus partially 
alleviating the problem of losing one-half 
of the brotherhood to graduation this 
spring. We look forward to another con- 
certed effort winter term to assure a full 
house next fall. 

The social life at stately Krapper man- 
sion was admirably run by Brothers Wax 
and Many, with the usual fantastic foot- 
ball weekends being combined with jam- 
mies and interesting theme parties. 

We were also busy on the fields, courts, 
and alleys of athletic battle. We have 
found that for success in intramural 
competition, perseverance in all sports 
rather than excellence in a few is more 
valuable. By entering all events, we are 
ranked eighth among fifty houses in pre- 
liminary standings. 

In closing, we would like to extend a 
plea for the students of Louisiana to 
establish a Phi Sig chapter somewhere 
in their area. The Sugar Bowlers of 
Kappa had no one to drop in on (mooch 
from) during our year-end visit.

"The brothers of Mu chapter wish to 
extend belated Christmas cheer and 
best wishes for a happy and successful 
1973 to all our fellow Phi Sigs. 

The social year was highlighted here on 
December 16th with a festive Christmas 
party for all our brothers and friends of 
the house. Keith Hansen, our social chair- 
man, did a great job in arranging the 
party and insuring that no one was dis- 
appointed by the celebration. Cam Cuchi- 
fellow, our resident bartender, was fit- 
tingly presented with a modest 32 oz. 
shot glass for his years of service and 
loyalty to the house. 

On the athletic side Satch Sandler won 
the coveted Mu chapter ping pong cham- 
pionship by defeating Tom Cannon in 
the finals. Satchino challenges any Phi 
Sig to meet him on the court to determine 
the National Phi Sig champion. The 
winner gets a 2 week pass to our fabulous 
roof-top lounge and indoor swimming 
facilities, plus a season ticket to the 76'ers 
home games. (Some incentive, don't you 

On the intramural water polo circuit, 
our team showed much promise until our 
title hopes were dashed when goalie 
Charlie "Guk" Lundy was the recipient 
of a dastardly, but well-placed blow to 
the left eyebrow. Without Charley, things 
look dim. Our intramural basketball team 
returns intact this year, having copped 
the Regional Phi Sig Championship last 
year. We again look forward to the an- 
nual tournament at Lehigh to display our 
awesome power and balance. 

On the serious side of sports, four of 
our brothers are enjoying an active sea- 
son with Penn's varsity basketball team. 
Whitey Varga, John Jablonski. Keith 
Hansen and Steve Batory, all returning 
lettermen, are again looking forward to 
participating in a post-season tournament 
this year. 

Rush got off to a slow start last sem- 
ester, but we did pledge six good men. 
Steve Greeley, our Rush Chairman, hopes 
to bring our enrollment back up to par 
with a strong spring rush in which every 
brother is going to actively participate.

Wf ith the crowning of King "Hap of 
Clap," Nu Chapter is looking forward 
to a semester as exciting and innovative 
as possible. "Basketball Weekend" will 
highlight the social calendar which is 
spearheaded by iron-clads Harry Gustaf- 
son and high-flying John Lindberg. Our 
enlightened goals this semester will be 
to maintain our position of leadership at 
Lehigh by continuing our individual pur- 
suits, keeping in mind the common goal 
of academic, athletic and fraternal excel- 
lence, true to Phi Sigma Kappa tradition. 

Nu Chapter has corralled a pledge 
class which is the epitome of the Lehigh 
student. Hopefully the brothers will in- 
culcate in them the same enthusiasm, 
strength, fortitude and effectiveness 
which is present in the sophomore class. 
These future brothers will be under the 
guidance and tutoring of omnipresent 
and erudite James Gallety. 

In intramural football Phi Sig was 
surprisingly upset in the championship 
game. An extremely questionable call in 

the last twenty seconds ruined our oppor 
tunity to win an unprecedented second 
straight championship. However, we ex- 
pect a tremendous showing in basketball, 
as we are led spiritually by the whiz kid 
from Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Lou 

As always, Lafayette weekend was a 
huge success with many alumni return-

Asa new year is upon us, the brothers 
and pledges of Pi chapter are anx- 
iously looking forward to the centennial 
celebration at Amherst this August. 
Things have been moving steadily for- 
ward for Pi chapter this semester, as we 
have concluded rushing with one of our 
largest pledge classes ever. As always, 
academics have been the major concern 
of the brotherhood, but besides maintain- 
ing our high average led by Brother 
Schwab, Pi chapter has become an 
athletic powerhouse. We concluded our 
football season undefeated and inter- 
fraternity champions, scoring 49 touch- 
downs to our opponents' 6. 

Led by Brother Mark Fuhrman, the 
bowling team won both the I.F.C. and All 
College Championship with Brother 
Fuhrman winning the trophy for the 
highest average. In basketball, our team 
is undefeated half way through the sea- 
son and has an excellent chance of re- 
maining so. Our golf team captured the 
I.F.C. golf team championship by over 
40 strokes and Brother Forbes was the 
medalist. Finally, Brother Cross won the 
Pi Chapter Athletic Award for sky div- 
ing and won a free trip to Lancaster 
General Hospital for a week. We would 
also like to congratulate our chapter 
President, Brother Sullivan on his recent 
engagement for which we receive no 
I.F.C. points. 

Second semester promises to present 
Pi chapter with more interesting events. 
Besides looking forward to the pledging 
period, the brotherhood has many big 
social events in store. AH brothers and 
alumni are more than welcome to stop 
by Pi chapter at anytime as there will 
always be something on tap. We will be 
looking forward to seeing many Phi Sigs 
at Amherst this summer and hope that 
this Centennial Year is one of the best 
for Phi Sigs everywhere.

/"" news at the Phi Sig house in 
^ Berkeley! We have four new pledges 
whom we rushed during the fall quarter. 
These new members boosts the Phi Sigs 
to the number two spot on campus. Rush 
here at Cal is a constant job which goes 
on year round. In the comings and goings 
here at Omega we are sad to report the 
loss of Brothers Ron Hutter and Arun 
Gosh. Ron is best remembered by the 
older members as the staunch sentinel, 
who through perilous times here at Cal, 
kept everyone from getting bombed. For 
Arun — well for him I can only say that 
the atmosphere of the house just will not 
be the same. 

The Phi Sigs are really making a name 
for themselves here at the University. 
The Little Sisters' program has been a 
great success again this year and every- 
one had a great time this past quarter. 
We are also proud to be able to boast 
that we helped send one of our brothers 
to the student senate. To add to these 
accomplishments we must not forget the 
California Pelican, a student magazine 
which several of the brothers helped to 
put together this fall. This Phi Sig adven- 
ture turned out to be somewhat humor- 

By way of sports — let us say that 
Omega is still organizing and if we can 
ever put it all together, we could be 
dangerous. We have found that while it 
is great to have fun sloshing around in 
the mud, it sure is even more fun to win 
while you're doing it. Fall quarter saw 
Omega with a great football team but 
no organization or practice — and our 
scores just didn't reflect our team. (Some- 
how that sounds familiar.) 

The most important news of the day 
is the Alumni Dinner we are going to 
have in celebration of our one hundredth 
anniversary and the initiation of Omega's 
one thousandth member! All this and 
much more will happen: 

APRIL 8th 

There will be good food, good times, 
and most of all — good friends and good 
buffet. The price of all this will be the 
same as last year — $5. Every Phi Sig in 
the area is more than welcome to drop 
by. If you plan to be in the area you 
have only to ask any of the over seventy 
alumni who were here last year, where 
you can have a great time! 


Be a part of our growing chapter and 
help us celebrate our success.

University of Illinois 

Season's Greetings from the men of 
Alpha Deuteron! Things are running 
smoothly here in Champaign, due in part 
to the outstanding success of a Retreat 
held in October. With the help of a 
number of our Alums and especially 
National Field Representative Dan Car- 
mody. Alpha '72. the brothers devoted 
a Saturday to patch up any rough spots 
in our programs. The Retreat not only 
resulted in a much more efficient house; 
it also gavt the brothers a better attitude 
to start the new year. 

Evidence of this came in November 
when we held out Little Sister Rush. 
Thirty girls were initiated following their 
pledgeship of a one-month period, during 
which they were required to become ac- 
quainted with the brothers and the house. 

Our athletic program is in full swing 
with many supporters following our 
teams. The house was practically emptied 
one weekend in November when 38 of 43 
made the 250-mile journey to Western 
Michigan to participate in the third 
annual Region IV Football Tournament. 
Through a rough schedule and a half 
foot of snow the Alpha Deuteron's fought 
to take second place behind Ferris State, 
a team that did everything well. Once 
again we would like to thank the brothers 
of Chi Tetarton for a good time. 

The Phi Sigs are now concentrating 
their efforts in IM competition to Basket- 
ball and Hockey. Led by our new house 
president. John Krausse, who is sporting 
a goal per game average, the hockey 
team is now 3-0. 

In basketball it looks like a repeat of 
last year, when we captured first place 
in our league. With every member of our 
championship team back. Alpha Deu- 
teron can really look forward to the 
coming season.

University of Minnesota 

At the beginning of every quarter, 
■^ Rush quite naturally establishes it- 
self as Beta D's top priority. Last quar- 
ter's Rush efforts produced nine junior 
actives who, in keeping with tradition 
here, are of superior quality. For winter 
quarter, we are planning numerous Rush 
functions with a basketball theme as a 
result of the fresh rejuvenation of school 
spirit in Minnesota's championship basket- 
ball team. 

The 50-year old house of Beta Deut- 
eron has undergone several improvement 
projects which have resulted in a massive 
internal face-lift. New furniture and wall 
panelling for various rooms were only a 
beginning and the brothers still have 
much work ahead. Other improvements 
included a reorganization of our alumni 
program through the conscious efforts 
of several brothers and alumni. Our spe- 
cial thanks goes out to Dan Carmody 
whose visit boosted the morale and con- 
fidence of the brothers here. (Oh yes, 
Daniel, Holly says "Hi"). 

Future events that we hearty Minne- 
sotans look forward to are the Alumni 
Stag & Casino Party on Jan. 12; Greek 
Week; Founders' Day on Friday, March 
30; and for the first time in two years, 
Campus Carnival; and of course, the en- 
tire year of 1973 — our Centennial year — 
which will undoubtedly be the best year 
yet for Phi Sigs everywhere.

A NOTHER SEMESTER HAS now officially 

come to a close here at W.P.I., and 
everyone is looking forward to a good 
long vacation. The introduction of the 
seven-week term has kept many students 
up nights trying to keep up with the 
accelerated pace. In spite of the new 
system Epsilon Deuteron ranked higher 
scholastically than it has in a long time. 

Rushing this fall netted fifteen out- 
standing pledges who are presently going 
through our newly revised and updated 
pledge training program. 

We welcome four new members to our 
Brotherhood. Congratulations to Bill 
Greene, Phil Kuszpa, Geoff Thayer, and 
Paul Houlihan; initiated on November 18. 

Sportswise our jocks have not had a 
terribly successful season, but we've had 
fun on the courts anyhow. 

Homecoming this year was quite a 
show at Epsilon Deuteron. Our new cook, 
John Ritzo. put out an amazing buffet 
Saturday night, and by the appearance 
of the house and the brothers on Sunday 
morning, it seems everyone had a great 

time. Congratulations and thanks to Steve 
Maiorano and his committee on winning 
for us the award for best Homecoming 

A Christmas party held on December 
16 for underprivileged children turned 
out to be a huge success and will prob- 
ably now be an annual event. 

Elections were held for second semes- 
ter and congratulations go to President 
Paul Baldiga, Vice President Bob Trotter, 
Co-Treasurer Bob Brennan, and Secretary 
Tom Socha. 

Special congratulations and good luck 
to Scott Bicknell on his election to I.F.C.

University of Wisconsin 

'The Zeta Deuteron chapter of the 
University of Wisconsin at Madison 
is going through an extensive rebuilding 
of our chapter's membership. We have 
been hurt by lack of experience and lack 
of manpower. This semester we hope to 
make a comeback. 

Through all of this, our chapter has 
been tops scholastically. We were Number 
One for all fraternities one semester last 
year, and we never have been out of the 
top five for the last two years. 

The outlook of the campus toward 
fraternities and sororities has improved 
from the hostile attitude of not too long 
ago. We hope to use this changed attitude 
to benefit us. We hope to report to the 
National Convention in August of 1973 
that we have made good as a functioning 
and viable chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa.

P all quarter is characterized by foot- 
ball at most colleges and Georgia 
Tech is no exception. A Liberty Bowl 
capped a so-so season for our varsity 
team. We'd like to pause at this time to 
thank Sid and the others at Psi Pentaton 
for putting five of us up for the night in 
Memphis. They seemed as pleased with 
our 31-30 score as we were. Thanks. 

All things considered, we had a pretty 
good quarter. Though not able to get our 
intramural football team rolling well, 
we did pledge eight men, giving us twelve 
pledges. Three of these men, Forrest Hib- 
bard, Alan Kersey, and George Sam's join 
Mark Vela as new Brothers. Congratu- 
lations, fellows! 

Last, but never least, we were pleased 
to see many of our Alumni at Home- 
coming, and hope to see every one of you 
at our Founders' Day Formal in March. 

Remember this is not only 100 years for 
Phi Sigma Kappa, but also 50 years for

University of Washington 

T ambda Deuteron is presently involved 
in complete renovation of Phi Sigma 
Kappa at the University of Washington; 
manifested in considerable structural 
modification of the physical plant, and 
encouraging increase in manpower. The 
year began with a very modest(?) active 
membership of two (2), having reluc- 
tantly purged the chapter of dead wood. 
Since the limitations imposed on the 
success in rush of only two men are con- 
siderable, we are quite proud of having 
pledged seven (7) men to date. Of these 
newly acquired associate members, four 
(4) have just recently been initiated. Our 
efforts were substantially augmented by 
support from National, for which we ex- 
press our sincere gratitude. 

Primary efforts are currently being 
directed at the development of character 
and an individual identity for the chapter. 
The nucleus of men presently active 
offers the most encouragement for the 
development of fraternity ever seen at 
Washington. We feel that with the re- 
modeling of the chapter house, and hav- 
ing established a sound nucleus of ded- 
icated active members we now have the 
opportunity to initiate a program of 
selective growth. 

Our current membership extends into 
the arena of campus activity with officers 
in the University Veterans' Association, 
which serves more than five thousand 
veterans on campus. Obviously, this offers 
our chapter resources to tap for the in- 
crease and expansion of the chapter 
within a group of individuals who have 
something intangible in common. Our 
rush efforts will primarily be directed 
in this area for the coming months. In 
the process of building a fraternity from 
the bottom, we hope that the age, matu- 
rity, and ability to accept responsibility 
will be an asset.

|_Jello from the brothers at Upsilon 
Deuteron! We've finished up this 
semester with a great record. We now 
have 8 new brothers and are working 
for a big pledge class in the spring. We 
capped off the past semester with the 
Moonlight Ball and our Christmas party 
for the children in the hospital. It's been 
a fun-filled and very rewarding semester. 

We are busy now with plans for refurn- 
ishing our house. Last year we hired 
ourselves out doing odd jobs and raised 
enough money to buy a new carpet for 
the "tube room." This semester we are 
selling light bulbs to pay for some new 
furniture or repairs on our old things. 
The people in Chapel Hill are going to 
have plenty of light bulbs for sure. Every- 
one is putting forth a great effort and 
we'll all enjoy the new look when we 
finish with our remodeling. 

Several of our brothers are planning 
to attend the Centennial Celebration this 
summer. We hope to be able to meet as 
many brothers as possible from other 
chapters. It would be interesting to hear 
opinions on fraternity situations on other 
campuses as well as to visit with alumni 
from all over the country. 

Things are going well for our chapter. 
It seems as though each of the brothers is 
filled with a spirit of cooperation and 
sincerity. We've all become very close. 
It's always a group effort with us. The 
ideals of Brotherhood, Scholarship, and 
Character certainly seem just as young 
today as they must have been 100 years

It is our sincere hope that you all had as 
rewarding a first semester as we did, for 
the fall of 1972 proved to be a real 
"winner" for us. During just four short 
months, Brothers Tom Cox and Ed 
Thornton managed to win a Ford Pinto 
and a bottle of Christmas spirit, in com- 
munity lotteries, respectively, and our 
chapter basketball team posted its first 
win since the peach basket stopped being 

But, believe it or not, that wasn't all, 
for in addition we traveled to the Uni- 
versity of Dayton, where we participated 
in the formal initiation ceremonies for 
the new Eta Hexaton chapter. We would 
like to thank them for their great hospi- 
tality, and we invite them down to the 
Bluegrass any time the horses run. It was 
also our great pleasure, while in Dayton, 

to meet Brothers Bert Brown and Rick 
Snowdon, who taught us to sing the 
fraternity songs a bit more accurately. 

Other noteworthy activities of Phi Deut 
this past semester included a highly- 
praised old-fashioned Homecoming, 
supervised by Brother Bill Lamb, which 
resulted in generous contributing toward 
a new ceiling in many rooms of the 
house; an enthusiastic Little Sister pro- 
gram, conducted by G. C. Moberley; and 
the activation of 9 young men who we 
feel sure will make great contributions 
to our chapter and to the Greek system 
while here at Kentucky. Our congratula- 
tions department also sends best wishes 
to ex-President Garry "Chief Head" 
Fleming on his recent wedding, and to 
Brother John Ray. ex-UK football coach, 
in his next job. 

Scholastic recognition is extended to 
Brother Moberley for his successful com- 
pletion of 4 credit hours the past sem- 

As the second semester commences, we 
are aggressively pursuing future Phi Sig 
pledges, as we rush to replace departing 
brothers. We believe that our techniques 
have been improved by the establishment 
of various Rush committees, thus making 
the event more of a group endeavor than 
before. The highlight of our year will 
occur early in March when we celebrate 
the 100th year of our fraternity's found- 
ing. A great celebration is in the works, 
and as our special guest we will be 
privileged to have Brother Richard Snow- 
don, Executive Director. Our annual 
spring Formal will be held this year at 
beautiful Carter Caves State Park, and 
will hopefully climax one of the most 
successful and productive semesters in 
our chapter's history, as we strive to live 
up to the Cardinal Principjes of Phi 
Sigma Kappa.

See the feature article for details. 

The Mothers' Club has again become 
a viable group at our chapter. Their first 
major project involves refurbishing the

already made a variety of "small-scale" 
improvements to the house. 

Our fourteen-man fall pledge class has 
shown itself to be an active, vital group. 
At this writing, we're looking forward to 
their initiation, which will take place 
early in February. 

A plethora of changes in the Little 
Sister-Moonlight Girl Program are cur- 
rently under consideration, in order to 
make it even more rewarding for both 
the girls and the chapter. In past years, 
the selection process has taken place late 
in the spring, but it may be desirable to 
modify this.

program designed by rush chairman

'TTeta Triton of M.S.U. extends gree' 
^ ings to all the Brothers and hop 
that they are having a little warme 
weather than we are. 

We have had a busy quarter here < 
M.S.U. Having dropped our formal typ 



rush program this year, we are now rush- 
ing members steadily throughout the 
quarter, reserving Thursday night dinners 
specifically for that purpose. We now 
have 17 pledges and we hope to pledge 
more through the year with this program. 

We had a very active quarter socially, 
starting off with several hay rides to get 
to know a few of the new sorority 
sledges. This proved to be profitable as 
t seemed all the Brothers did quite well 
:or themselves when our fireside came 
iround. The highlight of the quarter 
iocially, of course, was our Moonlight 
3all where we honored all of our 13 
ovely Moonshiners. 

Our latest social function was a Christ- 
nas party which included Pledges, Moon- 
hiners, the Mail Man, and of course all 
he Brothers. We exchanged gifts and any 
)f them that the Brothers decided they 
lid not need, we gave to the toy drive for 
teedy children. 

Our football team seemed to be miss-

Jniversity of Texas 

JJ^e at Theta Triton wish everyone 
a Happy New Year and many 
iledges. This last year for us has been 
progressive one, thanks to the hard 
york from our local brothers and alumni 
nd Jim "Midget" Borgan. The progress 
his chapter has made would not have 
ieen possible without "Midget's" new 
nethods on chapter organization and 

I Jim's ideas were reflected in our 18 
Pledges we had this past fall. Eighteen 
s twice the pledges we had all of 71-72 
chool year. When he arrived, hard work 
>egan. He showed us how, when and 
.' vhy to pledge a rushee. 

Through the new added spirit of our 
lew members, our intramural standing 
las increased greatly. Another big help 
o our program is our standing intra- 
Tiural chairman and recipient of the 

"President's Brotherhood Award", Rick 
Wyman. Rick is also our chapter Treas- 
urer and has been outstanding in his 
duties there also. 

Leadership in our first fall pledge class 
was not confined to one man. The whole 
group appeared to act as one. The active 
chapter gives a Best Pledge Award, 
which was difficult this time. Steve Tot- 
tingham was selected by the chapter as 
best all-around pledge. Steve did much 
for his pledge class in every respect and 
the chapter was very grateful. 

Brothers at Penn State you may relax. 
Your skin will be coming soon. We are 
very sorry about the oversight, but you 
know how strange weird things happen 
when a chapter of Phi Sig has to shell 
out money. We have been waiting five 
years for one skin from one of our most 
outstanding chapters. Theta Triton will 
not let it go that long, we promise. 

Hello, Brothers in "Bama". Too bad. 
Those sidelines are hell, aren't they. 
Leroy Jordan and the Tide had a hard 
time this year. Any time you all are in 
Longhorn country again, be sure and 
come by and see us — you hear?

University of Rhode Island 

A fter a successful season of rush 
■^^ we managed to pledge 22 at Lambda 
Triton. The present system of open rush 
at the University of Rhode Island has 
worked both to our advantage and dis- 
advantage. An advantage is that it allows 
us to give out bids at anytime during the 
semester. The disadvantage lies in the 
fact that it often results in a bids battle 
between fraternities where some give out 
bids before others. Other than this we are 
all satisfied with the results accomplished 
by this semester's rush chairmen, Joe 
Toscano and Jeff Whitfield. 

During the Christmas season we annu- 
ally have two big parties at Phi Sig. One 
is given for the retarded children of 
Ladd's School, which is a state supported 
retarded center. The other is given for 
the underprivileged children of South 
County, located near the U.R.I, campus. 
Presents are given out by Santa Claus 
and refreshments, movies, and sing-a- 
longs provide a pleasant atmosphere in 
the Christmas season. We hope that others 
throughout the campus may learn a 
lesson from this. We at Lambda Triton 
try not to remain so close always to our- 
selves that we neglect others. 

Our intramural program still remains 
active. The hopes of finishing in first 
place in football were shattered after a 
season of tough breaks. Our basketball 
team is playing well and such stars as 
Charlie Kennedy and Gary Oates may 
bring us to a good start this season. Joe 
Savino, the captain of the wrestling team 

Writer, 1973 

from U.R.I., Read Caldarone, and Wally 
Compare, all brothers, are performing 
well for the school this year. Well, from 
all of us here at Lambda Triton have a 
happy, joyous, and prosperous new year.

Idaho State University 

T_Iere we are at Idaho State sitting 
around the old T.V. watching the 
NFL play-offs; looks like there will be 
many of us who will be in financial debt 
before Christmas is here. 

After Thanksgiving, we had our local 
Founders' Day Dinner-Dance combined 
with our Moonlight Girl Dance. Our 
Moonlight Girl was Connie Walker who 
is a Dental Hygiene Major from Billings, 
Montana, and a member of Gamma Phi 
Beta. Congratulations to "Little Sister 
Connie"! Like most of our big functions 
this was a rally to remember. 

Before Christmas break, we had our 
annual Christmas caroling party with our 
Little Sisters with the usual changing of 
gifts and the partaking of our favorite 
Holiday drink, hot buttered rum, so that 
the cold winter weather wouldn't get us. 

The coming of a New Year will bring 
to our chapter seventeen new members 
into the Brotherhood. We all are looking 
forward to welcoming these new men to 
the active chapter; good going men.

Arizona State University 

/"'m Triton started into fall semester 
^ with 18 pledges who promptly adopt- 
ed the title of "Flaming Zeroes" instead 
of Pledge Class. 

Next on the agenda was the tapping 
for our auxiliary, the "Moonlighters", 
under the stellar direction of Bobby 
"Bridgework" Burns. These girls cannot 
spread themselves thin, and after weed- 
ing out 150 candidates, the Brothers 
hand-picked 30 new trolls, led by Nancy 
"Pies" Lovell, 1972 Moonlight Girl, Hips 
Headley, and Bumps Gasser. 

On the intramural scene, the brothers 
set out determined to retain their hold 
on the Fraternity Division crown. De- 
spite an upsetting football season, our 
"Ballettes" division of the Moonlighters 
kept the house jocks up, as we fielded a 
successful "Stroker" swim team, led by 
Surfer "Space" Rudisill of Ventura, pul- 
sating wrestlers, and eager, ballhandling 
volleyball teams. We remain on top at 

Socially, the fall semester was led by 
Scotty "STUMP" Smith, though some- 
what hampered by a salty tongue. The 
return of Brother Lizard, now in his 8th 


academic season, also livened the house 
between midnight and sunrise. He and 
his pet Porsche "Omar" return to San 
Diego to rest up for next fall. The house 
threw blowouts such the 2nd Annual 
School Blastoff which saw 1000 people 
overrun the house. Other highlights were 
the Hells Angel Party, Halloween Party, 
and Gobbler Party (Fall Rush). The 
brothers climaxed a ski trip to Sunrise, 
Arizona, with tire chains for party favors. 
Forty brothers and their dates beat off 
the cold chilly air inside the lodge. 

Chi Triton Brother Lt. Gregg O. Han- 
son was shot down out of his F4 Phan- 
tom over Hanoi this summer, and is now 
a reluctant guest at the Hanoi Hilton. 
Gregg's brother, Tom (another Chi Tri- 
tonite), led a project on campus in which 
the Brothers sold 100's of POW bracelets 
with Gregg's name imprinted. 

Congrats to Brother Violette, a $500 
Phi Sig Foundation scholarship winner. 

Second semester starts with Dave Pla- 
cek at the helm, Kim Kaesler as Vice 
President (and as the title implies, he 
will be in charge of vice); Glenn Turner, 
secretary; Rick Chassey, embezzler; Bob 
Hickok, inductor; and Mark Kuchler, 
sentinel. The Rush Committee, led by 
Jeff Zaruba (transfer from Univ. of 111.), 
is working hard. Jeff's superb efforts 
secured 4 outstanding new pledges before 
first semester finals, which kicks off Chi 
Triton's quest for bigger and better things.

Florida Southern College 

HT he Omega Triton Chapter at Flor- 
ida Southern extends heartiest greet- 
ings to all Phi Sigs. We are happy to 
announce that through the efforts of our 
Brotherhood, various Little Sisters, and 
friends, eight brothers broke two world 
marathon tennis records on the weekend 
of Nov. 3rd. In the process various banks 
in Lakeland pledged a total of $1200 
toward the United Fund, by paying a set 
amount for games and time we played. 
Brothers Cobb, McCord, Smith and 
Wood played, in the singles, 805 games 
in 40 and one-half hours. Meanwhile. 
Brothers Clay, Dunham, Masem, and 
Valerino played the doubles match, 400 
games for 19 and one-half hours straight. 
Although these records may be broken 
by now, it was a gallant effort for all 
those involved. 

Besides playing tennis this past semes- 
ter, we took first place in the Heart Fund 
Chalk Walk, again entered a fine display 
in the DZ's Cornucopia project and re- 
ceived the Greek Games Spirit trophy. 

Four brothers assisted in the installa- 
tion of pledges at Stetson Colony a few 
weeks past, and we wish them the best 
of luck and much success. We finally got 
more Phi Sigs in Florida. 


Spring rush is upon us, and prospects 
look good. We'll be meeting many men 
and I know we'll get a fine pledge class. 
Good luck in rush to ya'll. 

Again we'd like to plug for Christian 
Children's Fund Inc. in Richmond, Va. 
For twelve dollars a month we support 
a needy child, and we'd like to urge other 
Phi Sigs to share with us the feeling of 
being needed by someone. It's a great 
feeling, try it and you'll like it.

Kent State University 

TT he last six months have been very 
eventful ones for the Beta Tetarton 

In the fall, a major construction pro- 
gram got underway that will completely 
modernize and renovate the chapter 
house. When completed this spring, the 
construction work will add another bed- 
room to our house which will provide 
living space for eight more persons. Also, 
each of the existing rooms will be com- 
pletely remodeled, complete with new 
furnishings. When finished, the construc- 
tion and modernization program will give 
the Beta Tetarton Chapter one of the 
finest houses at Kent State. 

Also, an aggressive well-planned rush 
program resulted in a large and highly 
motivated pledge class during the fall 
quarter. One of the Beta Tetarton Chap- 
ter's goals for the 1972-1973 school year 
is to strengthen its manpower level, and 
the fall pledge class provided a big boost 
in this direction. The fall quarter pledge 
class was the largest pledge class of any 
fraternity or sorority at Kent State. 

This spring the Brothers are planning 
to organize an Open House for parents 
and alumni. This event will be timed to 
meet the completion of the house mod- 
ernization project, so it is hoped that all 
Beta Tetarton alumni will come back to 
Kent for this Open House. More details 
will be sent to alumni in a newsletter 
being prepared by the Beta Tetarton 
Alumni Association. In the meantime, 
any Beta Tet Brothers that want to help 
organize this Open House should con- 
tact Ed Brongo or Ron Book (216 E.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute 

HP he arrival of finals week brought 
with it the close of Fall semester at 
Gamma Tetarton chapter, but before 
finals the Brotherhood of Gamma Tet 
had already begun making plans for the 
upcoming semester. 

A new battery of house officers, elect- 
ed in mid-November, and led by Presi- 

dent Dave Jehle, have already laid plans 
for most of the ensuing semester. In- 
cluded in the plans are 3 big weekends. 
Saturnalia, Soire, and a Phi Sigma Kappa 
sponsored R.P.I. Alumni weekend. Soire 
and Saturnalia both feature a concert 
given by some big name rock group or 
singer. A band party, cocktail party, and 
buffet at the chapter house are also a 
large part of each weekend. 

Other plans for next semester include 
a Phi Sig sponsored Blood Drive on 
campus, and completion of the chapter 
house formal room. The new rug is in 
and we're waiting for the new house 
furniture to come any day. There are 
also plans to re-wallpaper the formal 
room along with the dining room. 

The end of the old semester brought 
with it the end of what was a rather 
disappointing rush period, as only 8 new 
pledges were added to the house. But 
spirit is high and hopes for a successful 
second semester rush are good. 

On the brighter side, a lagging Little 
Sisters program was revitalized by the 
addition of two new Little Sisters with 
prospects of at least six more by year's

/TIreetings Brothers: 

We here at ZTT have had an inter- 
esting quarter. We got back from a great 
summer and started cleaning up the house 
for rush. We started the quarter by hav- 
ing a perfect rush! We have increased 
our potential membership by TWENTY 
new pledges. It was a do or die situation 
for us here at ZTT. We got our football 
machine fired up to start a great season.. 
At the end of a hard-fought season we 
were seventh in the league, causing the 
retirement of Coach Murphy. This low 
placement didn't stop us in sports though; 
we placed high in golf, did good in bad- 
minton and cross-country. We are now 
getting our basketball team engine start- 
ed. We look forward to a good season. 

A look at the social aspect of ZTT 
will show that we have had several great 
parties. Number One on the list would 
be Homecoming. We ended up that week- 
end by a great band, good food, and a 
lot of women. How is the initiating busi- 
ness? Well ZTT just finished initiating a 
group of colonists at Clinch Valley Col-

Rutgers University 

W^hat a week! From December 8 to 16 
the Phi Sigs of Rutgers celebrated the 
1st Annual Marty J. Grumit Week — a 
week dedicated strictly to social activ- 
ities. Events began December 8 with 
a dinner dedicated to our alumni of the 
'50"s. Once again, Margo Korzilius was 
chosen the Homecoming Queen, and 
Frank Cretella best typified the dress of 
the era. John Fenwick served "Stugats" 
— the main dinner. It was enjoyed by all. 
except Gus Haritos who preferred "fish" 
for a Friday night. 

Saturday brought an equally enjoyable 
time as Brothers Demby. Fisher, and 
Connie entertained the boys with a 
"smoker" on the third floor. Sunday was 
dedicated to a cleanup, and three "dow- 
hans" were given to those failing to 
attend. Monday night scholarship was 
stressed as Hank Glickman led the 
brothers to the library. "Duper" missed 
this function for some "unavoidable" 
excuse. ( I smell a rat! ) 

Tuesday was the Athlete's turn as Al 
Zabody led the second floor to another 
"crushing" victory over Joe Godby and 
the third floor. Wednesday night were the 
elections. Stiff competition for each office 
split the brothers again and again. The 
only thing agreed upon by those attend- 
ing was that Pete Balog was the big 

The scene turned to food on Thursday 
night, as the brothers set new records. 
Among the records broken were: John 
Paparazzo — eating 8 more "Gino-burgers" 
than AI Horwitz, Dave Harbaugh — 4 
helpings of "S.O.S.". Jim Tuthill— finally 
eating 3 meals in one day. Friday night, 
the brothers went caroling. Greg Gama- 
che and Kathy Roselle led the singing, as 
Dick Lampen remained indoors to "re- 
arrange" the furniture. 

But as all good things, Martin J. 
Grumit Week came to an end with the 
annual Christmas party on December 16. 
Special thanks to Chuck Bergamo for 
"adding" to the refreshments, and for 
the presence of S. Klaus and his "curly" 
beard. Also to Bob Dollar for his reading

Things couldn't be much finer at Chi

football crown from Northern Illinois: 
we took the chugging contest, and a good 
time was had by all. We appreciate the 
participation by Eastern Michigan and 
the University of Illinois (a newcomer), 
and are sorry that Ohio State, Youngs- 
town State, and Southern Illinois could 
not make it as they had planned. 

Phi Sigma Kappa is making the move 
in the IFC on campus. Brothers Terry

in charge of Public Relations, plus Ed 
Derose as Chairman of the Rush Com- 
mittee. The way IFC has it set up. Phi 
Sigma Kappa will determine the entire 
Winter Rush here at Western. Also, Ed 
is chairing the Movie Committee for the 
University, a very lucrative position. 

Greek interest has taken an upswing 
here. We've increased our membership 
by 50 r A through pledging and already 
activating eight new men. This is the 
third largest pledge class on campus (out 
of 14 frats). However Phi Sigma Epsilon 
has had their charter withdrawn, leaving 
little doubt who the "Phi Sigs" really are 
on campus. 

As far as improvement in scholarship 
is concerned, what can we say? We were

folded. We're on top!

desolate years, we now have them com-

Early in November, with the help of

tary, John Coligan; Corresponding Secre- 
tary, Jack Hinds; Sentinel, Bernard Smith,

Ind draws crowds from miles around. 
Try it — it works! Our Christmas and New

Drexel University 

TThe brothers of Eta Pentaton would 
like to take this opportunity to con- 
gratulate and welcome the members of 
Delta Hexaton of LaSalle College as 
new brothers of Phi Sigma Kappa. We 
hope they fully embraced Brotherhood, 
Scholarship, and Character as a new 
chapter of our "ever growing throng". 
We were honored to serve as the induc- 
tion team and were pleased by their evi- 
dence of real Brotherhood. 

Members of our chapter serving on the 
induction team included Brothers John 
Gregory, George M. Sipe, Paul Kelly, 
Dave Rohland, Larry Seaman, Tom 
Armstrong, Bruce Kauffman. Ed Kipe, 
John Hiller, Charles Longenecker, and 
Randy Evans. The Grand Chapter was 
represented by Brothers Bert Brown, 
Richard Snowdon, Fred Nesbitt, and Fred 
Warman who were all a tremendous help. 

After the induction ceremonies, all 
who had participated were invited to at- 
tend a banquet at "The Inn of Four 
Falls" in honor of the new brothers. Fol- 
lowing that, most members of the 
"young" crowd attended a party at the 
Delta Hexaton house. We are sure that 
this is one great event not soon to be 
forgotten by anyone. Again, congratula- 
tions. Delta Hexaton. 

On the "home-front" ... we have a 
new administration! Since Drexel is a 
five year Cooperative Education Uni- 
versity, we at Eta Pentaton hold elections 
every six months. Our new officers in- 
clude Bruce Kauffman — President, Rich 
Scheller — Vice-President, Joe D'Emidio 
— Recording Secretary, Dave Rohland — 
Treasurer, George Sipe — Sentinel, and 
Rich Simonini — Inductor.

Indiana University of Pennsylvania 

"T he Brothers of Theta Pentaton 
have made their final plans for the 
National's Centennial Celebration. We 
are renting ten chalets at the Seven 
Springs Winter Resort in Somerset, Pa., 
for the weekend of March 16. 

We will arrive at Seven Springs on 
Friday night and will conduct little 
parties in each of the chalets. Saturday 
night we'll have a DINNER-DANCE 
and a speaker to celebrate PHI SIG'S 
100th ANNIVERSARY. During the day, 
we will be able to do various recreational 
activities. An indoor swimming pool, a 
bowling alley, ski slopes and lifts, and 
snowmobiling are all available to us. 
Many fund-raising events must be 
planned to finance this CENTENNIAL 
celebration at Seven Springs. 

Once again, the Brothers and the Sis- 

Winter, 1973 

ters of a sorority threw their annual 
Christmas party for the retarded children 
at Ebensburg State Hospital. Together 
they collected a total of almost $600 in 
just two hours. The money went toward 
the Christmas party, gifts, and for aiding 
the retarded. 

Our house won fourth place in the 
Christmas decoration contest among the 
fraternities on campus. Also a NEW 
YEAR'S EVE party was held for the 
Brothers and their dates from around the 
vicinity of I.U.P. at the house. Hot dogs 
and saurkraut helped top this festive 

With all the enthusiasm being gener- 
ated for this year's Centennial Celebra- 
tion, I'm sure we'll be the most talked 
about Fraternity on the I.U.P. campus.

University of California

Call Quarter. 1972. in its overall 
aspect was indicative of a recent trend 
at Kappa Pentaton toward the "mellow" 
life-style. No longer do those creeping 
incredulous catastrophes permeate the 
Kappa Pentaton scene. To be sure the 
Macho element remains, but scholarly 
aspirations seem to have emerged pre- 
dominant in the minds of men. 

It is anticipated that Phi Sigma Kappa 
will again light up the scholarly road for 
the other fraternities on campus, as we 
have done for several quarters now. Most 
any Junior High School librarian in the 
country would be pleased as punch at 
the tremendous lack of volume (Ken- 
wood in origin in previous years) during 
our revered "Quiet Hours" for study and 
contemplation. By no means has this 
transition become complete, however. We 
are not Milk Drinkers, nor sedate uni- 
directional beacons of blinding scholarly 
intensity. The (in) famous Christmas 
Party, whose brazen festivities are the 
sacred knowledge of the Brothers and 
Little Sisters alone, has the self-contained 
potency to dispel any such slander. Yet. 
in assessing the generalized picture of 
Kappa Pentaton today, one can only con- 
clude that the hallowed halls of the 
Hell-Raisers echo more of hurricanes 

Regardless of the house disposition on 
that spectrum from taciturn to torrential, 
that which is the core of fraternity exist- 
ence prevails — Brotherhood. Of the three 
Cardinal Principles it is by far the high- 
est ideal and most difficult to attain. 
Brotherhood is a giant step above peace- 
ful co-existence to vital interaction. 
Until there are no two Brothers who 
merely co-exist in the same shelter, this 


ideal has not been attained. Powerful 
tendencies exist which draw one toward 
specific individuals or segments of a 
diverse community, and it is this human 
magnetism which must be overcome, at 
least in part, if one is to successfully 
encounter every Brother on open ground. 
The task is Herculean to be sure, but it 
is the primary aim of Kappa Pentaton 
and, hopefully. Fraternity everywhere.

Ferris State College 

/^reetings to all Phi Sigs from 
Lambda Pentaton. First term ended 
with an air of athletic success at Ferris. 
Jim Knezevich, athletic chairman, organ- 
ized the football teams and the Ferris 
football Phi Sigs won first place in nov- 
ice division and second place in pro- 
division competition. Then it was on to 
Homecoming weekend and the Greek 
games, where the Phi Sig men ran off 
with two track trophies: a first place in 
the log race and third in the chariot race. 
The well oiled Lambda Pentaton foot- 
ball machine then traveled to Chi Tetar- 
ton chapter at Western Michigan Uni- 
versity. Gary Sievart, named by Ferris 
State Colleges' newspaper, as the most 
successful intramural quarterback, lead 
the team to the REGION IV FOOTBALL 
CHAMPIONSHIP by dethroning over 
rated Pi Pentaton. 

Two brothers, Mark Viel and Tim 
Simson, gained the positions of treasurer 
and vice-president respectively, on the 
I.F.C. executive board. 

The Little Sister's program is now mov- 
ing well again with the addition of thir- 
teen new Iil sisters. 

The attitude among the brothers here 
is good and we are trying to pull togeth- 
er to make this centennial year one of 
the best in our history.

proud of their newly-acquired skating

Speaking of athletic prowess, the ex- 
tremely prepared Nu Pent gridders took 
on the fearless gridders of Gamma Hex. 
In an unforgettable weekend, the two 
teams fought down to the wire. The final 
result could have gone either way but, 
in the end, Gamma Hex pulled out a 
squeaker. The final score was — Gamma 
Hex, 47; Nu Pent, 0! ! ! ! ! We thank 
the brothers of Robert Morris for a 
great weekend. 

Around campus. Brothers David A. 
Shell and Vance Hein have been elected

recent installation of new executive offi- 
cers with Glenn Hofeldt as president, the 
chapter has successfully completed an- 
other fall pledge period of activating 17 
new brothers on December 15. 

New to our chapter was a memorable 
Family Day. Well over 200 people made 
this event a permanent calendar date for 
the future. 

This fall semester we had the oppor- 
tunity to run the coatcheck at the student 
center with all proceeds going to a worthy 
cause for our chapter. 

Also, new for our chapter and possibly 

even a new innovation for all Phi Sigs i: 
our adoption of the Phi Sig hat. Severa 
other chapters have already expressec 
their interest in the silver and magent; 

Congratulations to Brother Pete Tau 
benheim and Barb Wiese (AOTT) or

/TIreetings from the Brothers of Tat 
*""' Pentaton! 

The past semester has proven itself tc 
be very rewarding for our chapter. First 
of all, we inducted several fine pledges 
and we welcome their services to out 
fraternity. We also defeated our chiel 
I.F.C. football rivals for the first time 
in several years. Needless to say it fell 
good — what a celebration we had! ! One 
interesting note is that we played tackle 
football instead of flag football. This 
provided us with a very exciting season. 
One unfortunate outcome of I.F.C. foot- 
ball is that there was an unprecedentec 
three-way tie for first place and a play- 
off game was voted down by I.F.C. This 
semester, we hope, will prove equally as 
rewarding for us. 

We here at Mansfield would like tc 
extend a warm welcome to all of our 
alumni and hope that they will come and 
pay us a visit. There are a few older 
brothers who have once again returned 



Ho Mansfield to continue their education 
land they are looking forward to seeing 
ftome of the alumni. So come on up! ! ! 

We would also like to extend an invi- 
| ation to any brother of Phi Sigma Kappa 
[ to come and pay us a visit. We're sure 
[ [hat you will have a good time. Ask the

to extend their greetings to all fellow 

hi Sigs. The fall semester started with 

ur Soccer Homecoming victory the third 

eek of school. Our float won 1st place. 

and a trophy for our growing trophy 

pase. The float was completely mechan- 

Ized with two brothers inside a man's 
lody. He downed the Boilermaker which 
le made and said, "I can't believe I drank 
r he whole thing," after which his head 
urned and smoke shot from his ears. 

Pledging wasn't overlooked either. Al- 
hough only five in number, we feel that 
ach is capable of stepping into an 
officer's position immediately. Their grade 
index average is the second highest we 
have had among our pledges, 4.5 on a 6.0 
scale, and have shown how close they 
ban work with us. 

The Little Sisters, headed by Brother 
Warren Sonaty. has a fine group of good 
looking girls. They have helped us in all 
pur functions and the Brothers are proud

Halloween party. Everyone was in cos- 
tume while the two biggest hits were 
Frankenstein and Count Dracula. With 
autumn on our heels the annual Autumn 
Odyssey Road Rally was held under the 
direction of Brother Al Paulauski. The 
activities proceeded with a hay ride at 
Uncle Ben's and a Christmas basket for 
a needy family. This year we entered a 
float in Downtown Hammonds Christmas 
parade which was cheered by many chil- 
dren and parents as being the best float 
in the parade. The brothers continued 
the spirit of Christmas by going caroling

President Dan Grosso and the brothers 
were loaned a truck from Del Rose Auto 
Rental and spent an entire weekend in a 
Drive-athon — a dollar per mile for Chil- 
dren's Hospital. We drove six hundred 
miles throughout the campaign. 

Rich Curry and his social committees 
have set up many activities throughout the 
past semester including a football week- 
end between Gamma Hexaton chapter 
and the chapter at Clarion. The final 
score, 57-0 . . . R.M.C. over Clarion . . . 
held no bearing on the great time we all 
had Saturday and Sunday. We would like 
to thank the brothers of Clarion P.S.K. 
and hope that the weekend proved as 
profitable to them as it did to us. 

We are hopeful of having a winter 
holiday in January or February, includ- 
ing, tobogganing, sled riding, and ice 
skating. If any of our neighborhood 
chapters are interested, please contact 
Brother Grosso at the above address.

Due to the outstanding efforts of seven

informed that we are the most outstand- 
ing chapter overall in Region II. 

Among our special fund-raising proj- 
ects was the Hogie Sale, proceeds from 
which went to the educable retarded 
children in Sunbury. The 16th of Decem- 
ber was the day of the Christmas party 
for the retarded children. Brother Scha- 
berle acted as a very jolly Santa Claus. as 
Christmas presents were given out. Later 
that day. the whole Brotherhood went 


out to dinner at the Dutch Pantry, a local 
restaurant. In the evening, we had our 
annual dance-party at the houses. 

Since Brother Holmes' house was dam- 
aged in the flood in June, the brotherhood 
went to his house in Highspire, Pa., and 
assisted Holmes' mother in flood repairs 
and redecorations.

Virginia Polytechnic Inst. 

C victed — Virginia Tech's Phi Sigs lost 
their house. What used to be the 
"Home of the Hell-Raisers" is now a 
gravel-covered parking lot. It was the 
event of the year for the "townies" to 
watch our house being driven down the 
street to a new location. Our ex-landlord, 
Uncle Scrooge Pack, paid well for his 
efforts as a zoning ordinance forced him 
to move the house twice at an additional 
cost of $18,000. Housing Committee 
Chairman Matt Mowrey is planning for 
Epsilon Hexaton to move into the new 
fraternity row complex being built sev- 
eral blocks from campus. Hopefully, it 
will be completed by next Fall. 

Social fraternities are now recognized 
by the Virginia Tech administration, cli- 
maxing years of petitioning by the I.F.C. 
Fraternities were autlawed in the 1880's 
and began making "unofficial" comebacks 
as secret clubs in the years after W.W. II. 
Although many Greeks were wary of 
massive administrative interference, no 
problems have occurred yet. A fraternity- 
sorority coordinator has been appointed 
to mediate for the Greeks and assist them 
in rush and school-related activities. 
With the help of this adviser, the I.F.C. 
will hold a huge rush party in the student 
union — complete with individual frat 
brothers and a band. This will be an 
attempt to reach freshmen who will be 
eligible to pledge in the Spring. 

Epsilon Hexaton's President Frankie 
Scott and his "family of bears" are work- 
ing hard to keep the chapter morale up 
since we lost our house. We hold meet- 
ings at the other I.F.C. houses, as well 
as in brothers' apartments. 

The Phi Sig Jock Squad, under the 
leadership of "Lover-boy" Calvert, strug- 
gled to rebuild our grid squad for a 
winning season. But — a sputtering offense 
could only muster a win over TKE. 
Basketball is looking well with returning 
vets Terry McMahon. Lou Klaff, Frank 
Scott, and Tom Fraites teaming up with 

Some Brother Phi Sigs rooting the N.S.U. colonists on to victory on Homecoming Day

election of a new executive board. The 
newly elected are: President-Carl "E-Z" 
Guillary, Vice-President-Beau S. Jandry; 
Treasurer-Tommy Plaisance and Secre- 
tary-Fred Romero. 

The colony took a trip to the Tau 
Tetarton chapter at the University of

est bunch of brothers you could possibly 
find anywhere. We challenged them to 
an intramural football game, but the 
colony of N.S.U. was beaten. Other than 
that we would like to thank them for 
their great "Northern-type Southern hos- 
pitality". Thank you Martin brothers. 

Besides the "tragedy" at Martin — the 
"Colony" took second in intramural 
football here on campus beating the P.K. 
T.'s for second place and losing to the 
T.K.E.'s for a close first place. With the 
end of the fall semester at hand, the 
"Colony" threw a Xmas party for the 
retarded children of the area. After the 
party, a check for $50 was presented to 
the school by our newly elected pres- 

Have faith however. We can foresee

olik; secretary, Tony Verga; treasurer, 
Gary Schifano; sentinel, John Kuster. Our 
advisers are Dr. Nufher, of the Math 
Dept. and Dr. Glenn of the Psychology 

The Executive Council with the aid of 
National advisers has begun an extensive 
reorganization program. Our plans in- 
clude a financial committee to curb "in- 
activeness", an increase in ritual meetings, 
and an all out effort to improve our 
campus image. 

Last fall, our Homecoming float, under 
the watchful eye of float chairman Dennis 
Schied. garnered second place and the 
Queen's trophy. The brothers retained their 
usual high standing in I.F.C. competition, 
echoing their basketball victories at 
"friendly" Rochester Institute of Tech- 

We are looking forward to a great 
Spring semester. Although we have been 
afflicted with dwindling rush classes and 
have lost ten brothers to student teaching 
and graduation this semester, we can be 
proud of the internal strength of our 
chapter and the ability to bounce back 
from seemingly disastrous predicaments. 
Under the leadership of Ken Johnston, 
and a revamped rush program, we are 
looking for a potential of 20 or more 
young neophytes to wear the black and 
grey at E.S.C. this spring. 

We are planning an explosive spring 
weekend with our usual fantastic party 
on Saturday and a delicious steak fry on 
Sunday coupled with our annual Softball 

Any alumni of Omicron Pentaton are 
cordially invited to attend and drop in 
at the "Soda".

Clinch Valley College 

r\% November 1 6th and 17th, 1972 
^■^ twelve pledges were initiated into 
Phi Sigma Kappa, thus establishing an 
official Phi Sig colony at Clinch Valley. 

Clinch Valley College is a branch of 
the University of Virginia located in the 
Virginia portion of the Appalachian 
mountain range in Wise, Va. It is a small 
school with an enrollment of roughly one 
thousand students. 

Phi Sigma Kappa is the first national 
fraternity on the C.V.C. campus. Our 
colony is working hard to stir student in- 
terest in the Greek system and to improve 
the social life of the college which, at 
the present time, leaves something to be

Initiation ceremonies took place at the 
home of Pat Kelly over a two day span. 
The brothers at East Tennessee State 
University provided the initiation team, 
who gave an admirable performance. 
Those initiated were as follows: Jeff 
Kiser, Steve Bryant, Jerry Fields, Eddie 
Dotson, Mike Adams, Gerald Webb, 
Daryl Delp, John Ayster, Wm. Roseberry, 
Chip Seons, Danny Price and John 
Mahony, the faculty adviser. The cer- 
emony was carried out in due and proper 

Following the initiation, officers were 
installed by the ETSU team. Those in- 
stalled were: Pat Kelly-president, Jeff 
Kiser-vice-president, Steve Bryant-secre- 
tary, Jerry Fields-treasurer, Mike Adams- 
sentinel and Eddie Dotson-inductor. 

The colony is now working hard to 
obtain its charter. We are planning an 
upcoming rush party, funded by money 
earned by a recent T.U. raffle. A Little 
Sisters chapter, which would be a tremen- 
dous asset, is not far away. 

The brothers of our group would like 

to extend special thanks for the letters 
congratulations and offers of assistan 
we have received. We will strive to li 
up to the confidence and trust which h 
been bestowed upon us by our brothe: 
Special note: Many thanks to P 
Kelly, who hails from Omicron TetarU 
at Tennessee Wesleyan, who was main 
responsible for the establishment of tlfcj 
fraternity at C.V.C.

Johnson Named 

Region IV 


By Council 

Bruce C. Johnson 

— Calling On All Loyal Phi Sigs — 

To support ffie 1973 Voluntary Alumni Support Fund Drive. In 
our Centennial Year, Phi Sig deserves just a fifffe extra in the 
way of financial support from her Alumni. Will you do your part? 

It is with considerable regret that we announce the 
resignation of Brother Orville (Pat) Asper, 
Alpha Deuteron (Illinois) '58 as Council member 
Vice President from Region IV. His resignation was 
due to very urgent personal problems which could not 
be resolved while he was performing his duties as 
member of the Council. We'll all miss Pat. 

In accordance with the Bylaws which empowers 
Council to replace vacancies in its own body between 
Conventions, the members chose Brother Bruce C. 
Johnson, Alpha Deuteron '70 to serve as Vice Presi- 
dent of Region IV until the next Convention. 

Brother Johnson, though relatively young, has had 
a tremendous amount of experience in fraternity work 
and is well equipped to fill this important position. 

He was Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship 
winner ($1000.00) in 1969 and we quote below the 
thumbnail sketch of him in the winter 1970 Signet 
when his success was announced.

Beta Kappa, and Ma-Wan-Da (senior men's honorary); 
chapter offices-corresponding secretary, vice-president, 
pledge trainer, president; hobby-music; career plans- 
writing for a national news magazine. 

After completing his Masters Degree work in the 
Fall in 1971, Bruce took a position as a day-time police 
reporter with the Times-Democrat of Davenport, Iowa, 
in October 1971 .. . utilizing his evenings to complete 
required reading for his M.S. in Communications from 
the university which was conferred in February 1972. 
He is still working with the Times-Democrat and has 
affiliated with Sigma Delta Chi, the national journalistic 
professional society. 

At the recent meeting of the Foundation, he was 
elected a Trustee to replace the late Dean Terrill. He 
is also Secretary of the Phi Sigma Kappa Association 
of Illinois. Bruce's brother, Jeffrey, is a member of 
Alpha Deuteron in the class of '69.

Was Phi Sig House at Arizona 
the Product of Mystery Architect? 

by Lynn Ketchum 
Wildcat Staff Writer 

AN air of mystery surrounds the Phi Sigma Kapp 
house on East Third at the University of Arizom 
a fortress-like structure complete with panelled wall 
and wooden beams. To an architecture student th 
contemporary design is reminiscent of the unorthodo 
ideas of the late Frank Lloyd Wright. 

However, Professor Gordon Heck, a historian i 
the University architecture department, remain 
stumped as to its origin and designer. 

Heck said the home is believed to have been bui! 
around 1908 by a popular southwestern architect 
Henry Trost, who at one time may have been acquaint 
ed with Wright. 

According to Steve Beal at the Phi Sig house, th 
home was built for a former professor at the Univei 
sity and is still owned by his son, the elderly R. Good 
rich of Tranberry, New Jersey. 

According to Heck, the design is similar to Trost' 
home in El Paso, Texas. Both homes appear to b 
rendition of a home built by Wright for the Bradle 
family in Kankakee, Illinois. 

"This house," Heck said, "was undoubtedly th 
source of Trost's houses in Tucson." 

Heck said much of the information is unverified 
since there are no city records on the architect wb 
designed the fraternity house. 

In the past it was rumored by at least some mem 
bers of the Phi Sig house that the home was either com | 
pletely the work of Wright or at least partially designee 
by the world reknown architect. 

Heck denied this, saying that Wright had nothing | 
do with the design, but that Trost may very well hav 
been acquainted with Wright. 

According to the information collected by Heck, a 
one time the El Paso-based Trost worked in Chicagi 
in the 1880's. Trost was in the ornamental iron busi 
ness and occasionally did work for Louis Sullivan 
Wright's early teacher. It was through this work tha 
Heck believes Trost became acquainted with Wrigh 
and Wright's designs.

The President's Message 

ftURING THE RECENT months of this Centennial year, I have enjoyed the 
■^ thrilling experience of participating in a number of Founders' Day celebra- 
tions. For the most part I have been extremely proud of the spirit of Brotherhood 
so much in evidence on these occasions. As your Grand President, I confess that 
it is indeed hard to be humble when you're a Phi Sig. 

As I have observed the large number of brothers returning to renew old 
friendships among the older brothers and to form new friendships among the 
younger brothers who are now active in the chapter, I cannot help wondering 
what impression those six intrepid Founders would get about our present day 
brand of Brotherhood if they could return and join us in this centennial cele- 

Would we measure up to their standard of Brotherhood which motivated 
them to organize the Three T's? Or would they find us falling short of the goal 
which they envisioned on that fateful March 15 One Hundred Years ago? 

History records that those six sophomores at Massachusetts Aggie were 
inspired to found a new fraternal order, because they were searching for a 
kind of Brotherhood, different from that offered by other fraternities of that 
era . . . with which they had so little in common. 

Obviously they were men of strong character and of high moral purpose 
. . . dependable, reliable, responsible. Judging from the way they overcame the 
almost insurmountable obstacles they faced in those early days, one cannot 
help wishing that their indomitable spirit and unswerving determination could 
have been bequeathed to some of our present day Phi Sigs. Too many of them 
are inclined to give up and allow their chapters to die an untimely death, when 
the going gets rough . . . when they fail in Rush with their manpower sagging 
to the breaking point ... or when they lose interest because they allege they 
are not getting their money's worth in parties, beer busts, etc. Possibly some of 
our Alumni too might prove to be of greater value to their fraternity, if they 
displayed the same deep sense of responsibility toward Brotherhood . . . as did 
Barrett, Brooks, Campbell, Clarke, Clay and Hague. Perhaps a silent pledge by 
each of us to emulate their example could be the greatest gift we can bestow 
upon Phi Sigma Kappa in this Cepieryrtiai year. /

Founders' Day 

Phi Sigma Kappa flag flying over the Queen Mary on Thursday, 
March 15 and again on Saturday, March 17 

Amid the splendor of the fabulous ocean liner, 
HMS Queen Mary, the Phi Sigma Kappa flag flew 
majestically above the three towering smoke stacks, 
bidding welcome to the members of Phi Sigma Kappa 
as they came to celebrate her 100th anniversary with 
a gala dinner and a delightful program at Long Beach, 
Cal. Over 673 Phi Sigs from chapters all over the 
United States made this the biggest area Centennial 
celebration on March 17. 

The program, suited for this once-in-a-lifetime occa- 
sion, was planned so that everyone in attendance felt 
the significance of the event. The evening was called 
to order by Centennial Chairman Thomas W. Gerfen 
who introduced the Master of Ceremonies Vick R. 
Knight. Brother Knight asked everyone to look back 
100 years and think of some of the events that were 
taking place in the world at the time Phi Sigma Kappa 
was founded. 

The Founders' Day Proclamation and Centennial 
ceremonies were conducted by the chapter Presidents 
from Kappa Pentaton and Iota Pentaton. The chapter 
President from Omega Tetarton led the assembled 
guests in the Phi Sigma Kappa Creed, followed by the 
invocation from the President of Rho Tetarton. 

An outstanding dinner was served by the stewards of 
the Queen Mary amid the plush surroundings of the 
"Grand Salon", an elite dining area of the 81,000 ton 
former flag ship and renowned Queen of the Atlantic. 
During the dinner the guests were entertained by a 21- 
piece orchestra under the direction of Brother Bruce 
Polay, Omega Deuteron '71. 

Actives from all seven participating chapters were 
on hand to greet the many alumni from other chapters 
who came to see old brothers and meet new ones. 

Regional Vice-President Robert Zillgitt, presiding 
officer, welcomed the assembled brothers with remarks 

Region V Southern Cal. Area Chap 

about how Phi Sigma Kappa has achieved this mile- 
stone and what goals lie ahead for it in the future. 
Master of Ceremonies Vick Knight introduced the six 
District Governors and the eight Chapter Advisers 
among the dignitaries in attendance. 

The chairman of the Los Angeles Board of Super- 
visors, Mr. James Hayes, presented Vice President 
Zillgitt with a beautifully engraved, large, multi-col- 
ored resolution, congratulating Phi Sigma Kappa on 
its 100th anniversary and noting its fine record of 
accomplishments. Vice President Zillgitt, on behalf 
of Phi Sigma Kappa, thanked the Board of Supervisors 
for their resolution and their thoughtfulness in honor- 
ing Phi Sig on this gala occasion. 

Brother Gratiot Washbume, Psi (Virginia). '10, 
was honored as the oldest Phi Sig (83 years young) at 
this regional Centennial celebration with an appro- 
priate plaque. Brother Washburne received a standing 
ovation by all members present. 

As a special part of the program, Vice-President 
Zillgitt presented a specially designed three-color Phi 
Sigma Kappa Centennial Crest, made of porcelain and 
mounted in a walnut plaque to men who have, over 
the past years, made a special contribution to Phi 
Sigma Kappa and helped it achieve its greatness dur- 
ing the past 10 decades. Those recognized were:

Additionally, the following participating chapters

University, Loyola, California Slate University at Los 
Angeles and Fullerton, University of California at 
Santa Barbara, and the chapter at University of 
Arizona received due recognition and appropriate 
plaques for their participation in this area Centennial 

Centennial Chairman Gerfen acknowledged and 
thanked sincerely the many members of his Cen- 
tennial Committee who planned this successful event 
and the many hours they devoted to it. 

A special thanks from the Centennial Committee 
went to those Phi Sigs who gave of their time and 
made donations: Archie Hicks, C. Thomas Voss, Vick

Brother Gerfen took time to read a special greeting 
sent to him — a telegram congratulating Phi Sigma 
Kappa on its 100th Anniversary, and noting its deep 
pride in ten decades of positive and constructive ac- 
complishments and wishing every future success. This 
message of recognition and best wishes came from the 
President of the United States, and is reproduced on 
the front cover of this SIGNET. 

Special door prizes were given to those in attend- 
ance. A gift of some recreational property, valued at 
over $2500.00 at "California City" was the grand 
prize, and was won by Brother Robert Westphaln, 
Omega Tet '67. Other gifts included a year's supply 
of Coca Cola, a portable television set, several special 
Phi Sig Centennial Jim Beam Decanters, mugs, wrist 
watches, pen and pencil sets, and numerous other spe- 
cial items. The total value of these prizes was over 

The highlight of the evening was a Centennial ad- 
dress by Dr. Alvin S. Rudisill, Past National President 
and current Chaplain at the University of Southern 
California. Brother Rudisill, in a dynamic and moving 
address, told of the challenges Phi Sigma Kappa had 
faced in the last 100 years and how we met them. 
He told the assembled group of new horizons we must 
face in the next decade to come. 

A major surprise to those in attendance was the an- 
nouncement by Vice-President Zillgitt that the Centen- 
nial Committee had obtained a specially designed 
marble paperweight which had the Phi Sigma Kappa

Some Highlights of the Event 

Over 47 chapters from across the nation were repre- 
sented by members attending. 

Fifteen brothers drove from Tucson, Arizona, a distance 
of over 500 miles. 

Brother Henry Provincio, Omega Tetarton, and his 
bride, Nancy, in her wedding dress from their marriage 
that afternoon, spent the evening at the celebration 
before leaving on their honeymoon. 
Two undergraduates from Pi Deuteron, Ohio State, 
were present. 

Six of the seven participating chapters had an under- 
graduate attendance of not less than 91%. 
A member from Rho Tetarton chapter received an 
award for the person who came the greatest distance 
(Detroit, Michigan) for the celebration. 
The highpoint of the evening was definitely Gratiot 
Washburne's reception of the "Oldest" Phi Sig Award. 
As Gratiot rose from the rear of the huge banquet 
room and began to walk slowly but deliberately toward 
the podium, he was greeted with an uproar of applause 
and cheers. As he struggled forward through the 
crowded room, all 673 people gave him a standing 
ovation, which continued, in one of the most moving 
moments of the night, until Gratiot had reached the 
speaker's platform and received his award. Upon reach- 
ing the front of the room, Gratiot '10 was greeted by 
Todd Duer '75, a recent initiate of Kappa Pentaton 
Chapter, who dashed forth to congratulate his senior 
fraternity brother. They posed as a striking contrast in 
age, dress, and life styles — yet both were Phi Sigs. 
The newly founded Kappa Pentaton Alumni Club 
hosted their first Alumni Reunion in Long Beach prior 
to the Centennial Celebration. The alumni were pleased 
to entertain many of the chapter's undergraduate mem- 
bers as well as many out-of-town alums including past 
Presidents Don Payne and Jim Gilpin, and past Chapter 
Adviser, Greg Davis. 

Crest and Founders' names with the Centennial date, 
embossed in polished chrome on the top, as a memento 
for each Phi Sig attending this historic celebration. 

District Governor Charles V. Loring presented to 
Brothers Thomas Gerfen and Robert Zillgitt a Centen- 
nial plaque with an appropriate inscription, commend- 
ing them for the superb leadership they have provided 
for Phi Sigma Kappa over the past years. 

A special award was presented to the President of 
Rho Tetarton chapter for the 100% attendance of that 
chapter's undergraduate members. The Omega Tetar- 
ton chapter received a special recognition award for 
having the highest percentage of their chapter Alumni 
in attendance at the celebration. 

Music and singing are always a part of any Phi Sig 
event and this occasion was no exception. The evening 
concluded with several robust choruses of popular Phi 
Sig songs. With the benediction and the reciting in 
unison of the Phi Sig creed, the grand and gala area 
Centennial celebration came to an end. Each brother 
left to continue his Fellowship with the old and new 
friends he had made and with a renewed spirit of 
dedication to our Cardinal Principles.

Indiana University of Pa. 

The Brothers of Theta Pentaton Chapter at Indi- 
ana University of Pennsylvania commemorated the 
Centennial of Phi Sigma Kappa at Seven Springs Win- 
ter Resort in Champion, Pennsylvania, the weekend of 
March 16-18. This celebration also marked Theta 
Pentaton's 10th year on the I.U.P. campus. 

The brothers and their dates arrived at the resort 
early Friday night in the middle of a rainstorm. The 
rain looked as if it was going to continue all weekend, 
but because of the unlimited facilities available at 
Seven Springs, the weekend still proved to be very 
enjoyable. Swimming, bowling, and a miniature golf 
course, all indoors, were substituted for the outdoor 
' recreational activities due to the weather. In fact, the 
Phi Sig Bowler's Tour and the Phi Sig Golf Open were 
held inside the lodge on Saturday afternoon. 

By late Saturday morning (the time when everyone 
was just getting up, due to the Chalet "hoping" parties 
and the Moonlight Swim from 12 P.M.-2 A.M., the 
previous night), the rain had changed to snow. 

Saturday night proved to be a very memorable 
event. The brothers were honored to have in attend- 
ance many distinguished guests of the Grand Chapter 
of Phi Sigma Kappa. Grand President, Brother Wil- 
liam H. Aaron, was the keynote speaker and enlight- 
ened the brothers and their dates about the history of 
Phi Sigma Kappa. Other officers present from the

Grand Chapter President Bill Aaron relating to the Brothers 
at Theta Pentaton 

Grand Chapter included Brothers Rick Snowdon, 
Executive Director, and Fred Nesbitt, Region II Vice 

Brother Nesbitt, also a graduate of Theta Pentaton, 
related to the brothers and guests the history of the 
chapter from its existence as a local fraternity, known 
as Sigma Kappa Phi, to its initiation into Phi Sigma 
Kappa National Fraternity. Moving from a renovated 
gas station to its present, newly remodeled house, 
Theta Pentaton Chapter has grown to its present posi- 
tion as a leading fraternity on the I.U.P. campus. 

Also present were Dr. William W. Hassler, Presi- 
dent of I.U.P.; Dr. John E. Frank, Interfraternity 
Council Adviser, and "MOM" Shea, wife -of our late 
adviser Brother Walter T. Shea. 

Dr. Frank, on behalf of the Interfraternity Council, 
presented the Brotherhood with a proclamation con- 
gratulating Phi Sigma Kappa on its anniversary. He 
also presented Chapter President Gary Luckenbill with 
a pewter pitcher from the Dean of Men's Staff at 

After the dinner and the speeches. President Gary 
Luckenbill presented the scholarship awards to their 
respective recipients. The Clark G. Robb Memorial 
Scholarship Award and the Walter T. Shea Memorial 
Scholarship Award both went to Brother Robert 
Brecker. The Edward Dale Dana Memorial Scholar- 
ship Award was presented to Brother Leonard Mihal- 
ich, and the Alumni Memorial Scholarship Award 
was given to Brother David L. Acker. The recipients 
of the scholarship awards were each presented with a 
$100.00 check for their scholastic achievements. Also,

Brother Fred Nesbitt teils one of his famous jokes at Theta 
Pentaton's Founders' Day Banquet 

Brother C. R. Sholley was the recipient of the 
"Brother of the Year" Award. 

Following the presentation of these awards, the 
the band started to play for the dance. The dance 
lasted until 1 1 : 30 P.M. when a power failure occurred. 
Once the dance was over the couples returned to their 
chalets for a "Post" party by candlelight. 

Although this extraordinary celebration took many 
hours of planning and financing, it proved to be well 
worthwhile. Grand President Aaron recognized this 
gathering as one of the largest Centennial Celebrations 
being held. The attendance at the Dinner-Dance on 
Saturday night was approximately 300 people. The 
weekend was most enjoyable. In fact, the brothers 
of Theta Pentaton would like to see the celebration of 
Founders' Day at Seven Springs become an annual

University of Washington 

Lambda Deuteron Chapter at the University of 
Washington celebrated its 50th year and the Cen- 
tennial of Phi Sigma Kappa on March 15, with a 
memorable Founders' Day Banquet. Fifty-two alumni, 
eight actives, the Region VI Vice-President, and UW 
Director of Athletics attended our most prestigious 
ceremony, held in the exclusive Rainier Club. This was 
indeed our most successful Founders' Day in recent 

Rev. Robert Reynolds, Region VI Vice-President, 
presented the chapter with the handsome 50-year 
plaque from the Grand Council, in recognition of our 
Golden Anniversary. Six members of the original 
founders of the chapter were in attendance, and were 
presented with golden certificates. Two of these broth- 
ers travelled from California to Seattle to be with us, 
and another came from his home in Texas. This is 
indicative of the lifelong commitment these fine gen- 
tlemen feel to the principles of our fraternity. 

Keith E. Johnson (LD '66), chapter adviser, was 
presented with the annual Lambda Deuteron Found- 
ers' Award in recognition of five years of unselfish 
and courageous dedication to the promotion of our 
brotheihood and chosen ideals. Chapter President 
Dale Beatty was presented with the Stewart H. Rudi- 
sill Leadership Award for his participation in the 
salvation and restructuring of LD during the past year. 

Dr. Joe Kearny, Director of Athletic Activities at 
the University of Washington, was the featured speaker 
of the evening. In an eloquent but informal discussion 
of the policies which have made the UW Number Five 
in the nation athletically, many parallels were obvious 
with our own ideals and objectives. Success in these 
endeavors requires strong and dedicated leadership 
working within a well developed structural framework. 
Collegiate athletic recruiting is remarkably analogous 
to rush within the fraternity. The ability to present 
something you believe in is essential, but the follow-up 
on prospects is critical. Follow-up impresses on each 
prospect that we are interested in him as an individual, 
an integral part of the chapter. 

Alumni response at the celebration was indicative 
of the rapport at LD between the active chapter and 
the alums. Casual informal cocktail hours, preceding 
and following the banquet, permitted exchanges of 
ideas between our generations bonded by brotherhood. 
The active chapter and the chapter house are vested 
interests of all Phi Sigs, and the response to financial, 
labor, and advisory needs on the part of our alumni is 
rewarding evidence of their undying commitment. We 
are here because of you and the things you stand for, 
and someone else will be here in the future because of 
the things we stand for. 



Nu (Lehigh) chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa marked 
the national fraternity's Centennial celebration 
with a special observance Saturday (March 10) at the 

The program, starting with a reception and dinner 
in Lehigh's Rathbone Hall, included a tribute to Le- 
high trustee emeritus Brother H. Randolph Maddox, 
of Chestertown, Md., University and fraternity alum- 
nus who is a retired vice president of American Tele- 
phone & Telegraph. 

The program also included a talk by Lehigh presi- 
dent Dr. W. Deming Lewis and a Founders' Day 
ceremony marking the 72nd anniversary of the estab- 
lishment of the Nu Chapter at Lehigh. 

For his many contributions to Lehigh and to his 
fraternity, Brother Maddox was presented with an 
engraved silver tray and a portrait of himself, which 
will be hung in the fraternity chapter house. The pres- 
entation was made by Brother Edward A. Curtis, Le- 
high alumnus and trustee from Doylestown, Pa., who 
is also an alumnus member of the fraternity. 

Said Dr. Lewis: "The founders of Phi Sigma Kappa 
perceived that the best goals of education lie in the 
building of men, not merely the dissemination of 
knowledge. The fraternity's three Cardinal Principles 
are to promote brotherhood, stimulate scholarship, 
and develop character. In these goals are expressed 
the great value of the fraternity to education and to 
Lehigh in particular." 

"Classrooms are important," he continued, "and I 
am glad to see that scholarship is an important goal of 
Phi Sigma Kappa. But those who have been out in the 
world know that scholarship alone does not provide a 
road to success and happiness in life." 

Dr. Lewis said that one must add character, aiming 
at high goals and persistent application of efforts to 
achieve them. But scholarship and character are not 
enough, he added. 

"It is only through brotherhood or, more broadly, 
the sharing of tasks, goals, and social life with others 
that one can fully enjoy life. 

"The fraternity is the only path to these ingredients. 
But it is a tried and tested path and one that has been 
of great value to Lehigh. Through the fraternity, the 
brothers can learn initiative, develop their skills as 
managers and, most important, can learn to work 
effectively with other people. 

"It is one of the wonders of University life that fra- 
ternities, which are such valuable parts of education, 
can also be the keys to such great enjoyment and to 
so many enrichments of life both during the under- 
graduate experience and afterwards." 

H. Randolph Maddox 

Presiding at the Founders' Day ceremony was 
Brother Randall McMullen, of Suffern, N.Y., a Lehigh 
alumnus who is president of Phi Sigma Kappa's alumni 
association. He is also a former District Governor of 
the National. 

Brother James P. Anderson, Lehigh senior in the 
College of Business and Economics from Wilmington, 
Del., who is president of the University chapter, was 
master of ceremonies. The Centennial program was 
followed by a dance at the chapter house. 

Brother Maddox was graduated from Lehigh in 
192 1 with a B.S. degree in mechanical engineering. 
He was vice president of AT&T from 1954 until he 
retired on January 1, 1960.

University of Akron 

This was not just an ordinary Founders' Day for 
Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity chapters across the 
United States. 

The date was March 15 in 1873 — 100 years ago — 
when the first chapter of the fraternity was begun by 
six sophomores at Massachusetts Agricultural College, 
now the University of Massachusetts. 

On the University of Akron campus, where Phi 
Sigma Kappa, Eta T chapter, has existed since 1942, 
specific recognition of Founders' Day this 100th anni- 
versary was a reunion at a local dinner club, held 
March 17th. Edward A. Custer, a sophomore brother, 
was the formal committee chairman. As is traditional, 
Founders' Day dinner at Eta Triton remained a 
males-only event. But because this year's Founders' 
Day has added significance, the annual formal at AU 
was included in celebration activities. Among those 
attending the event were AU President D. J. Guzzetta, 
an honorary member; and Alumni Brother Richard 
L. Hansford, vice president and dean of student serv- 
ices; Steven T. Ffurtt, adviser of students; Donald M. 
Jenkins, associate law professor, and Howard Crotts, 
president of the Akron University Chapter Alumni 
Association. Cheri Underwood, an AU junior, was 
elected Centennial "Moonlight Girl" by the chapter. 
She resides at 611 Sherman St., Akron. 

Around the nation, there now are about 90 active 
chapters. Eta T chapter, 44th to be founded, has ap- 
proximately 60 members. Richard A. Jones of 594 
Sunsetview Drive in Akron is chapter president. 

Only one young lady could be the Centennial "Moonlight Girl," 
at The University of Akron, for Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity. At the 
Akron U chapter's Formal, Cheri Underwood (middle), a junior, was 
selected. Discussing the plaque she received is Akron U President 
Dr. D. J. Guzzetta, an honorary member. On his right is Mrs. 
Guzzetta. Others at the table were Richard A. Jones, Eta T chapter 
president and Miss Underwood's escort, and Brother Richard L. 
Hansford (right), vice president and dean of student services at the 
University. This year's formal was a part of the celebration com- 
memorating the fraternity's 100th anniversary. 

Brother Alumni.,., 
The Foundation Needs 
Your Support 

The Phi Sigma Kappa Foundation provides a very 
significant service for its active chapters and col- 
onies, and for their individual members, in the way of 
scholarships and scholastic awards, designed to en- 
courage and motivate superior academic achievement. 
Founded just 25 years ago, this is a separate cor- 
poration, organized under the laws of the State of 
Delaware. Its purpose as stated in the Articles of In- 
corporation is: ... "to operate solely and exclusively 
as a beneficent, charitable, literary and educational 
organization not for profit" . . . 

The funds of the Foundation have been accumulated 
over the years from three sources — ( 1 ) the former 
Endowment Fund, provided by gifts from Alumni and 
transferred to the Foundation when it was established; 
(2) annual contributions from Alumni, including gifts 
of $100 to the Century Club; and (3) earnings from 

The fund has now reached approximately $100,000. 
Each year the Board of Trustees allocates between 
$5000 and $10,000 to a program of scholarships, 
academic trophies, matching awards (scholastic and 
library) and gifts of books and periodicals for the 
development of a chapter library. 

Gifts to the Foundation are deductible on the 
donor's income tax return, as long as the funds are 
devoted to the educational purposes for which it is

Our Lambda Chapter at George Washington 
University in Washington, D.C. has been 
inactive for about three years. Lambda's alumni 
association is now attempting to recolonize and is 
looking for transfers to form the nucleus of a new 
chapter. The alumni association, tvhich has sev- 
eral hundred active members and a fairly sub- 
stantial endowment, is prepared to grant $1,000 
scholarships to any qualified active Phi Sigs who 
would be ivilling to transfer to George Wash- 
ington to organize the new chapter. In addition, 
Lambda's alumni will help to find and support 
the necessary fraternity house facilities. 

If anyone in your chapter is interested in this 
offer, please have him write to the follotving ad- 
dress for a scholarship application and further

Michael J. Wiener 

Headquarters Staff Changes 

Wiener replaces Snoivdon and 
Borgan steps up to new post. 

The Grand Council has announced with regret 
that Brother Rick Snowdon resigned his position 
as Executive Director effective April 17. Rick has 
accepted a position with a very bright future with the 
Katz Sales Agency, a firm that specializes in media 
(radio and TV) sales, working out of its Atlanta, Ga., 

Brother Michael J. Wiener, Nu TT (Rutgers) '65, 
has been appointed Executive Director, effective May 
1, upon the recommendation of a special committee 
appointed by President Bill Aaron. 

Mike received his B.A. Degree in History Education 
at Rutgers University in 1965 and a Master's Degree 
in Student Personnel Administration in Higher Educa- 
tion from Indiana University in 1967. At Indiana, he 
served as Resident Counselor and Assistant Head 
Counselor, and was Assistant Coach of the Indiana 
University Swimming Team. He also served as Adviser 
to Phi Sigma Kappa's Sigma Triton chapter at the 
University and was Editor of the Student Personnel 

In 1967, Mike joined the staff at Michigan Tech- 
nological University, Houghton, Mich., as Counselor, 
Coordinator of Student Activities and Organizations, 
and Director of Fraternity Relations. He also served 
as Varsity Swimming Coach (1967-72) and was the 
organizer and Chairman of Big Brother-Big Sister 
Organizations (1968-70). 

He was extremely active in community affairs, as a 
member of the Rotary Club, City Council, the Selec- 
tive Service Board, and other civic projects. 


Brother Wiener held membership in a number of 
personnel educational associations and student and 
faculty organizations. He is 29 years of age and a 

Mike's fraternity background and his extensive 
experience in personnel work ideally equip him for 
the post to which he has been chosen. The entire 
fraternity joins in wishing him the greatest measure of 
success in this all-important position. 

The Council has also created a new position at 
National Headquarters — a Director of Chapter Serv- 
ices and has announced the appointment of Brother 
James J. Borgan, Jr., Gamma Hexaton (Robert Mor- 
ris) '71, to fill this new post. 

Jim is well-known in Phi Sig undergraduate circles, 
having served as Chapter Consultant since August '71. 
Prior to entering Robert Morris College in 1968, he 
spent nearly four years in the U.S. Marine Corps . . . 
serving in 18 states, Hawaii, Okinawa, Japan and 
Vietnam. He graduated with a B.S. degree in Market- 
ing from Robert Morris in May '71. 

As an undergraduate and Charter Member of Gam- 
ma Hexaton, he held virtually every major office in the 
chapter. He was also active in interfraternity affairs 
and held a number of extra-curricular offices on cam- 
pus. In addition to his outstanding scholastic record, 
Jim was active in intramural football, softball, and 
basketball. He is 26 years of age and he too- is a 
bachelor, although we are not sure for how long. 

In his new position, Jim will supervise the work of 
the Chapter Consultants, maintain continuous contact 
with the chapters and direct the expansion efforts of 
the fraternity throughout the country. His record of 
achievement for the last two years makes it evident 
that he will add considerable strength to the Head- 
quarters staff in this capacity.

Some Thoughts about Letters of Recommendation 

by Dr. James E. Sefton, Xi P (Fac.) 

Former Chapter Adviser and Associate Professor of History 

at San Fernando Valley State College 

Or. Jomes E. Sefto 

CCT) lease, sir," said the vaguely familiar youth, "I 
■^ know you don't know me too well, but I took 
your Civil War course last semester and I need a letter 
of recommendation. Could you write one for me?" Not 
all requests are like that, but a surprising number of 
students approach the matter of recommendations with 
uncertainty and lack of preparation. First of all, it 
should be noted that writing recommendations, espe- 
cially if they are printed forms with specific questions 
to answer or character traits to evaluate, often taxes 
the imagination of faculty members. The variety of the 
inquiries is endless. Does the person have the "ability 
to adjust to new situations?" "Do you know of any be- 
havior, activities, or associations which tend to show 
that this individual is not reliable, honest, trustworthy, 
discreet, and of good conduct and moral character?" 
"As to motivation, how would you describe this in- 
dividual: 1 ) Seeks challenging tasks; 2) Energetic and 
effective; 3) Vaguely purposeful; 4) Just gets by; 5) 
Aimless trifler." "Is this person neat and attractive in 
personal appearance and grooming?" The writer is 
also asked to imagine situations: "If you were respon- 
sible for carrying out a difficult job, would you want 
the applicant working with you?" "Would you object 
to having a member of your family under this person's 
command [in the Navy]?" If such questions seem 
meaningless (or even improper), it should be remem- 
bered that recommendations are designed to supple- 
ment transcripts by providing information which grade- 
point averages do not reflect, or which may even be 
academic in nature but of consequence nonetheless. 

Since the professor is expected to comment on many 
different attributes, the student must establish a base 
for the professor's knowledge. The ideal way is to have 
several office conversations during the semester. These 
should not be limited to the subject of the course, but 
should also involve the student's overall academic pro- 
gram and his goals and interests beyond college. Par- 
ticularly are such conversations desirable in cases 
where the class is a large one, or where there is little 
opportunity for acquaintance within the classroom. A 
recommendation which attests to a high level of schol- 
arship, but which checks off "no opportunity to ob- 
serve" on matters of leadership, character, initiative, 

and personality may only be mildly favorable in the 
eyes of some who read it. The student comes across as 
an intellectually capable but one-dimensional individ- 

It is also important to establish relationships with 
professors in a variety of departments, so that recom- 
mendations for specific objects can be solicited from 
the most appropriate individuals. A student should 
certainly know at least two or three professors in his 
major field well enough to ask them for recommenda- 
tions. But a Political Science major whose goal is law 
school might find that a professor of Business Admin- 
istration could comment on his ability and potential 
in a way that would interest a law school admission 
committee. Or a student going into elementary educa- 
tion — if he bore in mind that such things as playground 
supervision can be as important as classroom duties — 
might have desirable traits upon which a Physical Edu- 
cation instructor could comment. A collection of per- 
haps five recommendations, therefore, should cover a 
range of items, so that the reader will have a perspec- 
tive of many sides of the individual. 

The student should also observe certain amenities 
in requesting recommendations. The professor's per- 
mission should be secured before his name is listed as 
a reference. Better to be refused at the outset than to 
list someone who will have to return the form endorsed 
"I do not know this persoH well enough to write a 
recommendation." The writer, whether he is to fill out 
a printed form or compose an original letter — but 
especially in the latter case — should be given some 
notion of what he is recommending the student for. A 
little discussion of what the "internship" or the "man- 
agement trainee program" is all about will produce a 
recommendation that is more to the point and hence 
more valuable. Finally, the professor's memory may 
need refreshing as to when and in what capacity he 
knew the student, particularly if the recommendation 
is solicited several years after the association ended. 
Letters of recommendation are an important product 
of the college experience. It is the professor's job to 
paint a portrait of the student, but it is the student 
who must provide the colors . . . without which the 
professor is somewhat handicapped.

Leadership, Enterprise Mark 

Success of Los Angeles 

Public TV Station 

Brother Jim Loper Provides That Leadership 


T> /other Dr. James L. Loper, Chi Triton {Arizona State) 
53, holds the position of President and General Manager, 
KCEJ '-Channel 28, Los Angeles, and is a Director of the 
parent company, Community Television of Southern Cali- 

Jim was on the original Committee for Educational Tele- 
vision which became the non-profit corporation, Community 
Television of Southern California, licensee of Channel 28. 
He served as the first Vice President of CTSC and as Assist- 
ant to the President. In 1964 he was named Director of Edu- 
cational Services, and in 1965 assumed the role of Assistant 
General Manager. He was named Vice President and General 
Manager in 1967 and became President in April 1971. 

Holder of a B.A. in Journalism from Arizona State Univer- 
sity and an M.A. in Radio and Television from the University 
of Denver, Brother Loper received a Ph.D. in Communication 
from the University of Southern California in September of 
1967. In 1970-71 he served as Senior Lecturer at USC. 

His professional experience includes radio positions in Ohio 
and Arizona, including two years as weekend news editor and 
announcer for KTAR, NBC, Phoenix, and the 8-station 
Arizona Broadcasting System. Additional news experience was 
gained as an intern in the NBC Newsroom, Hollywood. 

Previous positions include Assistant and Acting Director, 
Bureau of Broadcasting, Arizona State University, and Direc- 
tor of Educational Television, California State College at 
Los Angeles. 

He is listed in: Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the 
West, Who's Who in Finance and Industry, and Who's Who 
in California. 

Recent honors include: Distinguished Alumnus Award, 
Arizona State University: 1972 Man of the Year, California 
Museum of Science and Industry, 1972. 

Jim served the national fraternity most capably for a num- 
ber of years . . . first as adviser to his chapter, Chi Triton, and 
for three years as Vice-President of Region V on the Council. 

At the start of the new year things looked grim 
for public broadcasting for a variety of reasons, 
mostly political, but some non-commercial stations, 
because of enterprising leadership, have managed to 
stay on top of the public TV pond. One such station 
is KCET in Los Angeles — ultra high frequency Chan- 
nel 28. 

One of the leaders in the public broadcasting field, 
ranking with larger, more well-established VHF sta- 
tions in New York, Boston and Chicago, KCET is 
budgeted at $5.1 million this year and reaches 643,000 
households which translates at more than 1.5 million 
viewers. The station recently moved into its permanent 
studios, once occupied by B-movie producers Mono- 
gram and Allied Artists, and has plans for further 
expansion on the 3.7-acre lot. 

Headed by James L. Loper, its president and gen- 
eral manager, the station hopes to steer a steady course 
through the Washington-originated hurricane that's hit 
public television and to continue on a prosperous and 
expansive road. Public support as well as audience fig- 
ures are growing, Loper points out, and with some 
clever maneuvering, such as bypassing opposition by 
entering in combined programming deals with WNET, 
New York, strides made by public TV may be sal- 

One of the big problems has been the Public Broad- 
casting Service network schedule, which has been cur- 
tailed by the government operated Corporation for 
Public Broadcasting in an effort to decentralize public 
TV. So, to strengthen their schedule, KCET, WNET 
and others acquired such programs as the BBC's 
"Roads to Freedom" dramas, based on Jean Paul 
Sartre's fictional trilogy on pre-war France. 



At this writing, the solution as to who will make the 
final decision on which programs will be seen on the 
PBS network has yet to be announced. It is likely, 
however, that a consortium of CPB, PBS and individ- 
ual station representatives will be called upon to help 
solve the problem. 

Nevertheless, CPB still controls the network's na- 
tionwide interconnection with federal funding. The 
harder question remains: If "balance and objectivity" 
is the criterion by which a program will be broadcast, 
then will CPB be the ultimate decider? 

Since it is the corporation's aim to strengthen public 
broadcasting locally, not nationally, the loss of a 
strong, viable network naturally will be felt in cities 
like Los Angeles and New York, as well as Boston, 
Philadelphia, Chicago and the rest of the major public 
television centers. KCET has been one of the major 
contributors to the PBS network. It's the station re- 
sponsible for giving us the Hollywood Television 

KCET is also the station that originated the fine 
Film Odyssey series, hosted by Los Angeles Times 
entertainment editor Charles Champlin. And, Loper 
said, another film package, supported by a $604,000

Loper, who has served as chairman of the Public 
Broadcasting Service board the last three years — his 
term expired at the end of December — applies a little 

hindsight and says, "insulated funding is what people 
in public broadcasting should have pressed for in the 
beginning" to avoid the present bottleneck caused by 
government interference. 

Meanwhile, KCET, under the handicap of being a 
UHF station, can make many boasts and is widely sup- 
ported in its community. Loper said there's another 
Sir Kenneth Clark series ready, Pioneers of Modern 
Painting, which is being shown exclusively to the Los 
Angeles audience. 

The station just completed a co-production deal 
with the BBC on two major documentaries. One, "The 
Birth and Death of a Star," is a serious astronomy 
study, and the other, filmed in Stockholm, is titled 
"How to Win the Nobel Prize." 

Financially, KCET gains support from many 
sources, and is probably the envy of many public 
broadcasting outlets because of the excellent contribu- 
tions made by the business community. About 700 
companies in the L.A. area contribute $275,000 an- 
nually to KCET. 

Money is also obtained through fund-raising events 
like on-the-air auctions, by both the volunteer Men's 
and Women's Councils, and other local community 
activities, subscription support ($1 million annually 
from 50,000 members), underwriting, funding from 
the Ford Foundation, CPB, and contributions made 
by a group called Friends of KCET. Auctions alone 
bring in $375,000 annually. 

KCET is a unique station that reflects the commu- 
nity it serves and, at this time of discontent in public 
broadcasting, emerges as one of the leaders in the field 
of public television. Like WNET and Boston's WGBH, 
KCET will undoubtedly be able to ride out the current 
storm. It's a viable, important station in its community, 
and deserves the recognition it has received.

Revival Meeting At 
Nu Pentaton 

By Burly Patterson, Nu Pentaton '75 

Faltering chapter picks up 
the pieces and forges ahead. 

^\Y7 ho was the pledge who stepped on Frank Laponza's 
W neck?" 

"I don't know but Frank was never to outdo Watson." 
"Do you remember when we buried the house mother 
behind our old house?" 

"I can't believe there's so many Alumni here!" 
"Do they still hold the Mary Bulbinytz party?" 
"They most certainly do." 

"I'm really proud to be part of this organization." 
Adrenalin seemed to be flowing through the veins of the 
brothers at the Revival Meeting, our annual Founders' Day 
held March 11, 1973. Over 25% of our Alumni showed up, 
reflecting the new spirit of the undergraduates. Over recent 
years, the chapter grew from 16 to 30 actives starting off the 
1973-'74 year. Projects on campus have given the under- 
graduate chapter a good yearly income. And, most important, 
the spirit of the chapter is reaching a new high. This spirit is 
now reaching the Alumni too. Yes, the chapter is presently 
in a great revival and ... we are getting a new house! 

In the year 1964, several students, headed by Wesley Sem- 
ple, got together at Clarion State and decided to start a 
fraternity, much in the same way as the six founders of 
national Phi Sigma Kappa did. Those students became a 
colony that year. In 1967, that colony became Nu Pentaton 
chapter. The chapter then acquired a house. All went well for 
several years until, in 1969, the chapter house was lost. 
Membership began to fall. It was a struggle finding places for 
parties. A new system of rush had to be found.

Award. Ed Spongier (left) with EKATOiTOI Award 

The brothers experimented with several new techniques for 
rushing without a house. As this period of experimentation 
passed, rush gradually improved. Membership enlargement 
brought the chapter up to thirty members and ... a new 
spirit. At the end of 1972, the undergraduates took a close 
look at themselves. There were no goals set as to the future 
of the chapter. Under the leadership of the newly elected 
president, Eugene Kocher, the brothers went about setting 
goals for the chapter. The first immediate goal was rush. 
That fall ten pledges were inducted into the Evergrowing 
Throng. Eugene Kocher and the executive board again sat 
down for a most important series of meetings. 

The board met with Chapter Consultant lames Borgan and i 
District Governor Rick Benton. The eventual goal of the 
chapter was to purchase a house in the distant future. In | 
order to realize this goal, we were told that our Alumni had 
to become better organized to take care of finances. Secondly, 
we were told to rent a house for a period. Thirdly, we were 
to continue on our money-making projects. 

In 1973, the chapter held several such projects. First, the 
brothers passed out desk blotters to all dormitory rooms. On 
these blotters were advertisements of the local merchants. 
These advertisements brought the chapter close to four hun- 
dred dollars. Second, the chapter set up a book co-op. Students 
would bring in their old text books to the operation. We would 
sell them for the students at a cost of 25 cents per book. This 
netted us close to a thousand dollars. 

Brother Dean Doernte and his housing committee exten- 
sively searched for a house. After a year of hard work and 
dedication, Brother "El Cheapo Deluxe" Doernte finally 
brought us a house. Negotiations were completed just a few 
days before Founders' Day with the help of Alumnus 
"Happy" Jack Buzzard. We now had the funds, the house, 
and now the Alumni. 

The Alumni could only become better organized by catch- 
ing the spirit of the undergraduates. It was decided that 
Founders' Day, 1973, would be the target date for getting the 
Alums together. Under the leadership of Paul Ferrett, periodic 
alumni letters were sent building up the occasion. Also con- 
tained in these letters was news of the undergraduates, alumni 
news, and general chit chat. These letters are a continuing 
operation of the undergiaduates. Also, all the actives wrote 
to their family members (their big, big, big, etc., brothers) 
asking them to come to Founders' Day and informing them 
of chapter activities. This personal contact with the alums 
was an important factor in getting all of them together. This 



personal contact also relays to the alums the new spirit of 
the chapter. 

Well, success and excitement reached a peak at the 
Founders' Day Revival meeting. The Alumni elected new 
officers, set yearly dues for the alumni club, and set up an 
award for the best overall brother of that year. The title of 
this award is EKATA2TOS, which means "one hundredth." 
The first brother to win it was Brother "Fast" Ed Spangler. 
Nu Pentaton was also proud of its president, Eugene Kocher, 
who was presented with the well-deserved Stewart S. Rudisill 
award, presented by Chapter Consultant James Borgan. Spe- 
cial recognition goes to Brothers Dean Doernte and Paul 
Ferrett for their hard work. Most important, recognition goes 
to ALL brothers of Nu Pentaton for it was a team effort 
between Alums and actives that made our revival possible.

Stetson's New Fraternity Initiates First "Actives" Class 

j p hi Sigma Kappa, Stetson University's four-month-old fra- 
! ternity colony, completed the initiation of its first active 
members on Friday, March 2, at Stetson. 

Originally begun, as a small local by the name of Delta 
Rho, the young Stetson colony decided unanimously to go 
with Phi Sigma Kappa national fraternity shortly before the 
Thanksgiving holiday. 

Founded on the theme "service as well as social", the 
Stetson fraternity colony is making many inroads and at- 
tempts to become involved in service projects for the commu- 
nity. Among the many service projects which many members 
are voluntarily undertaking are to help in the landscaping of 
a neglected graveyard in conjunction with a local garden 
club, to provide recreational sports for children living in a 
local housing project and to adopt a child through the Foster 
Parents Plan. 

Beginning the induction of its partial membership on Febru- 
i ary 3, Phi Sigma Kappa completed the initiation of its 
I remaining first pledge class the first weekend in March. 

In conjunction with the initiation of its members. Phi Sigma 
I Kappa held an open house for George Borders, Dean of Men 
land Dr. John Johns. President of Stetson University. 

Expressing their satisfaction with the new colony, both 
President Johns and Dean Borders stated that they believed

Consultant Jim Borgan at Stetson initiation 

the new colony was beginning a new trend in college frater- 
nities in which emphasis would be placed on service as well 
as social. 

Among the members of the founding class were Robert 
Schumaker, President: Thomas Stapleton. Vice-President; 
Steven Hall, Treasurer; Robert Taylor, Secretary; Richard 
Slocum, Sentinel; Cedric Bryant, Inductor; and members Bruce 
Thomas. John Lachman. Robert Mills, Daniel Giannini, Dave 
Ubbens, Ray McCleod, Nick Pisano, and Richard Hall. 

Present at the first initiation for the purpose of inducting 
the first Stetson Colony "actives" were Bro. Jim Borgan, 
national representative for colonization from Drexel Hill, 
Pa., and members from the Florida Southern chapter of Phi 
Sigma Kappa-. 

Shortly after the first initiation the Stetson Colony stated 
that it had obtained three new pledges which included Paul 
Meyers, one of the top amateur fencers in the country, and 
Robert Iscrupe. Bob Schumaker, President of the Stetson 
colony, stated that these members will become part of the 
founding class if they are initiated before a chapter charter 
is obtained. 


The Ever-Growing 

Following are new pledges and initiates reported to 
Headquarters from February 1 to April 15 . . . pledges in 
light face type and initiates in bold face caps. There were 
349 pledges and 306 initiates. The grand total from July 1, 
1972 to April 15, 1973—1151 pledges and 666 initiates. 
For the comparable period last year (July 1, 1971 to April 
15, 1972) — 1006 pledges and 646 initiates. How does your 
chapter stack up in these figures?

Cover of one 
of Vick's books. 

f\NE of the few things that Vick Knight, Jr., Omega Deu- 
^■^ teron (So. Cal.) '52 gets serious about is ecology. 

His interest in the subject runs from research to personal 
terror and he is one of the few persons in the society who 
decided to do something "to turn this pattern around." 

The former assistant superintendent of the Placentia Uni- 
fied School District joined with two other educators and a 
host of photographers to produce four books on ecological 
science for school children. 

The books, "filled with colore
